First, web page rendering works ok.

The problem is the texts on the toolbar or any button is missing.
Also some text in a popup describing plug-in compatibility was weird, I guess
it is a font problem.

(This problem is also reported to Debian BTS #493076.)

Here are some snapshots that shows the problem:

This happens only on one machine. The other installations works ok.
I've tried to remove ~/.mozilla completely, no difference.

So I guess it has something to do with fonts, but I
would like some clues on where to search.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Start the browser. :-)
Actual Results:  
No text on buttons, not even 'cancel' or 'OK' buttons.

Expected Results:  
Something readable. :-)

Here's my environment:

linux  2.6.25
Debian sid (yes, yes, 'unstable', yes, but my other sid-machines works fine. ;-)
