Emacs Font Trouble after X Upgrade

After a recent upgrade of X on my debian testing machine I began having font troubles. The one program which I have noticed it in is X-Emacs, although others may be affected. When I open emacs the font is somwhat squashed, that is the letters comeout short and it is not easily readible. However when I am logged in from a remote connection over ssh with x forwarding and I run emacs the problem does not appear, it also does not appear when I run emacs in terminal mode, so this makes me think it is not emacs itself.

I am runing with KDE 3.

thanks in advance,
