No fonts after dist upgrade


Hi!
Today I've made update of my Debian testing... After that I've lost fonts in my Gnome... There are all of menus, but all of them are blank. Also, there are no icons visible on desktop... Anyway: I remember where are few of them... If I doule-click this place they start what they are supposed to - still with no text.
Have you any idea how to fix this? I can still run consoles with ctrl+alt+F1...F6 as root.

I've checked my /etc/xorg.conf - I'm supprised there is nothing about fonts. Is it normal?

Code:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

While I still have same problem I'm thinking about anything to fix the problem... So: is there any logfile where I can find which package and when was installed/upgrated/uninstalled/anything with Synaptic?
