Weird font problem with GTK applications running in KDE


I'm having a very strange problem with text in GTK applications running in KDE (3.5). Very consistently random pieces of text show up in meaningless blobs of color. If I hover the mouse over the offending text it usually fixes itself instantly. I thought at first it was a problem with gtk because it only happened it gtk applications such as synaptic and eclipse.I reinstalled gtk - no help. I installed gnome and lo and behold it displays everything fine.

Here's a screenshot:

One odd thing in my Xorg.0.log:
Warning: font renderer for ".pcf" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".pcf.Z" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".pcf.gz" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".snf" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".snf.Z" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".snf.gz" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".bdf" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".bdf.Z" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".bdf.gz" already registered at priority 0
Warning: font renderer for ".pmf" already registered at priority 0
I haven't been able to track down a good explanation of this.



------------
Running
Xorg 6.9.0 on Debian Sarge kernel 2.6
KDE 3.5
if you need to know anything else just ask.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

They are set at the wrong resolution. Go into your Kcontrol(control center) and there is a section for gtk fonts under "appearance". You need to play around with the settings there to get them set properly.
