wine font problem

I have been using wine for a while without a problem and then all of the sudden all of the fonts on the programs that I was running in wine are totally unreadable. They turned to all symbols or something. Anyone have any ideas how to fix this problem.

Delete "cachedmetrics" in your .wine folder and let it try again. If it still screws up.. you must have installed a new font somehow that is screwing up the metrics..
