This says that it couldn't find a font it was looking for.

Gnome is pretty half-hazard. It's nice when it works, but can't be
trusted -- for instance, out of 6 identically configured Debian
machines, I can run gnome-session on startup on 4, but I _always_ get
name-service errors (with fatal halts) on the other 2. (Debian's
slightly behind, but problem and bug reports on the Gnome list are
still a bit too often for my liking).

Even though I'm using it as my default GUI, I'd trust gnome about as
far as I can throw it (the bits, not the machines :-)... It's still
somewhat unstable.

best,
