gnome/gtk not displaying fonts in menus etc.

I have a problem with all gnome/gtk apps. They have stopped displaying
text. All the menus are blank, and the buttons are blank except for for
the  icons they contain. Gtk/gnome apps have worked fine for a long
time, until  this problem appeared.
It's making things very difficult.

I've tried to solve the problem by reinstalling all ofHelix Gnome
(latest)   and ALL its dependancies (packages with 'rpm -qp --requires
*' in the dir  that contained all the Helix Gnome rpm's, and then 'rpm
-q --whatprovides' on all the libraries and files that command gave to
show thich packages would satisfy those file dependancies). I have also
reinstalled the X server (The 3dfx's 4.01 rpms), and my fonts, just in
case those were te problems.
The problem still remains.

There is a screenshot at - it may
show the problem a bit clearer.

There are a few apps that seem to be unaffected. For example - the
preferances dialogue and menus in xmms.

A few apps give warnings when started from the command line. I have
included the warnings that Pan gives on startup.

GnomeUI-WARNING **: gnome_app_insert_menus_custom: couldn't find
point for menus!

Gtk-WARNING **: invalid cast from (NULL) pointer to `GtkCheckMenuItem'

Gtk-CRITICAL **: file gtkcheckmenuitem.c: line 143
(gtk_check_menu_item_set_active): assertion `check_menu_item != NULL'

I have also made sure all the fonts are working by opening the gimp font
dialoge. However, KDE only seems to haev a few fonts in its font
Further, gnucash displays odd characters when I type in it. I rebuilt
all the fonts.dir files just in case. If this is a font problem, how do
I diagnose it?

I am hoping that someone knows if there is anything I can do to help
diagnose what is wrong, or perhaps someone even knows how to fix it. I
have  completely run out of ideas.
