x font errors

i have an application that works on one distro (fc 3) but not on another (slack 10.2)..

when i launch it i get a bunch of errors like so and then a segfault
FontInit():  0xe7091a8 (1 renditions)
        0 - XmFONT_IS_FONT [-adobe-times-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*], 0xe708a68
FontInit():  0xe7091a8 (1 renditions)
        0 - XmFONT_IS_FONT [-adobe-times-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*], 0xe708a68
FontInit():  0xe7091a8 (1 renditions)
        0 - XmFONT_IS_FONT [-adobe-times-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*], 0xe708a68
FontInit():  0xe7091a8 (1 renditions)
        0 - XmFONT_IS_FONT [-adobe-times-medium-r-*-*-14-*-*-*-*-*-*-*], 0xe708a68
and some of these are mixed in there
Cannot convert string "XmDIALOG_APPLICATION_MODAL" to type DialogStyle
btw.. this app is using openmotif for the gui.

i dont know a whole lot about fonts, but i followed the paths that are in xorg.conf and found these..

there are a lot more entries for adobe times, all with little differences.. but it looks as if it should find that font. any ideas.. again i do not know much about fonts so any ideas are welcomed..

i do not have access to the machine it successfully runs on, so comparing is out of the question for now.
