This looks like an issue I have seen a number of times before: Your font caches
were not updated when you uninstalled/installed/upgraded fonts. So, fontforge
asks what fonts are available, the X server lies to it and when it tries to use
of the ones thats not really there it blows up. ;( 

Try re-running 'fc-cache' against all the directories under
/usr/share/X11/fonts/ and see if that fixes it. 
Or check all the font cache files there for this font it's looking for and
regenerate that one. 

See bug 450709 for more info.
