Hmm ... this should not happen. How did you update to X.Org 7? Which
packages did you install from which repository? I recommend to simply
install all packages of

SUSE 10.1:

sax2/Factory already uses /usr/share/fonts, sax2/10.1 still uses
/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts. BTW, reconfiguration with sax2 should not
have been required, since xorg.conf is already patched in %post of
xorg-x11-server package to use the new font path.

I cannot recommend to do so. Did you run SuSEconfig (--module fonts)
after the packages update?

Sounds like a completely messed up font setup.
