kde fonts are no longer anti-aliased after XFree86 upgrade (apt) but gnome is fine?

I recently did an apt-get update and apt-get dist-upgrade using the standard os updates from The exact apt source line is :-

rpm redhat/9/i386 os updates

Now this has never caused me any problems before but I noticed that XFree86 got upgraded to

Since I did this, KDE refuses to display fonts anti-aliased. Gnome works no problems (I first saw that there was no problem running mozilla whilst running in KDE).

I've done the usual of restarting the font server, X server etc. but no joy. In fact, after I had done the update, all new KDE apps started (whilst the old ones were up and fine) didn't do anti-aliasing.
Is this because KDE needs built against this version of XFree86? I've updated my version of KDE to 3.1.4 using the fedora testing branch :-

(apt settings)

rpm 9 testing
rpm all testing
rpm 9 testing
rpm all testing

but still no joy.
This is doing my head in.
