Thanks all,
The problem went away when I properly configured GTK to use the correct
font in .gtkrc2.0. I also installed a bunch of libraries that were
a dependency for the gnome settings daemon; configuring .gtkrc2.0 alone did
not fix the problem.

fyi, I'm sure that I'm not running in seamless mode
