No visible fonts in X after an upgrade (Debian)


I just did an apt-get dist-upgrade with debian unstable. After rebooting my system, it seems that fonts aren't showing correctly in X anymore. When I select the text on a webpage or browse a menu in an application than it does show the font, but when I switch desktops and go back, all is lost again, and i have to select the text again in order to be able to see it. Also the text in the titlebar of any window sometimes just dissapears.

Below I have some links to screenshots that displays what I mean exactly, I have no clue what the problem might be, does anyone have any idea? I am really lost here. Thanks in advance.
