>From reading previous bugs around this area, I'm wondering whether there could
be old fonts.dir files around the place which refer to font files that no
longer exist, perhaps having disappeared in package upgrades. (We occasionally
find that old packages ship fonts that they shouldn't.)

Dave, could you please try to identify where this "bitstream charter" font
comes from, by running this:

$ egrep -r --include='fonts.dir' 'charter-medium-r.*iso10646' /usr/share | cut
-d' ' -f1

Let's say you get this output:


I'd like to know whether the file after the colon exists in the directory
before the colon. If it doesn't, we've got a problem.
