Wine Fonts not Displaying

I have read through many posts about Wine fonts not displaying correctly but so far none of the fixes I have found work. I have downloaded and isntalled arial32.exe tahoma32.exe Ran the winetricks, winetools, displayset. When using DisplaySet, I cant read any of the fonts on the left part of the screen but on the right side where it shows how the fonts will appear, everything looks fine. I have coppied my fonts from my windows computer and to both //usr/share/wine/fonts as well as ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/Fonts. I have sync'd up the two dirs and still can't read a single thing on the screen. Any ideas on what to do next? I have included a screenshot of what I am seeing.

EDIT: This is using Fedora 10 with Gnome desktop

Problem has been resolved... not sure specifically what it was as I just ran a schedlued yum update (which did include a Wine update) and its now showing fonts back to normal again.
