xfree 4.3 and kde 3.1 / 3.1.1 = font problems / kprinter crash (BUG ?)

Hi,

I did upgrade my SuSE 8.1 box to Xfree 4.3 and kde3.1 and now kde 3.1.1, and I
did run in a problem (a bug) involving font display and printing, causing
koffice to crash when trying to print.

After wasting 2 days with it, I give up, either this is a bug or I need good
ideas from you guys to show me a solution.

I cannot say for sure, when exactly the problem started, but as far as I
remember it was after the Xfree 4.3 upgrade, using the provided SuSE 8.1
rpms.

There seems to be a problem in the display of fonts, which leads to

1) In ControlCenter/SysAdmin/Font Installer there is no preview of any font
anymore.

- Either "no preview available"
- or it seems to show a preview, but it is not visible, as if it would print
white on white
(this one is just a little annoying)

2) In konsole

- ALL the default fonts are invisible. They are there, but again white on
white (Normal, Tiny, ..., huge).
- If trying to select a "fixed" font, again, they are not visible.
- Other fonts are visible, such as "Lucida console"
(this one is also just a little annoying)

3) In kword, kspread, or any program using kprinter, this one crashes when
trying to print, but ONLY when certain fonts are in the document. It is
crashing no matter if preview or printing.

- It works fine with fonts such as helvetica, Arial, Arial unicode MS, Futura
Book, Lucida Sans Typewriter, Charter, Utopia, Tahoma etc.

- It crashes when using Lucida Sans, Zurich, Verdana, Trebuchet MS, Lucida
Fax, Luxi Mono, Angsana New, Book Antiqua etc. , see backtrace attached
below.

All these fonts did print fine before with kword printing.
(this one is quite annoying, I really would like to use koffice)

- however if I print a file from openoffice using kprinter and a font, which
is crashing kword printing (see above), it prints fine!

Is this a kde problem. I think yes and no.
================================

- yes, because xfontsel shows all fonts fine.
- yes, because openoffice prints all these fonts with no problem.
- no, because openofice also does not display small fonts anymore, if the view
(windowsize and zoomfactor) results in the font being somewhat small (but not
too smal to display). The test is there, but again "white on white", just not
visible.

I did reinstall xfree 4.3, qt and kde a couple of times, with no change. I
even tried to downgrade to Xfree 4.2, but then kde would not start anymore,
it insisted in finding libfontconfig.so.1, which got installed by XFree 4.3
only, and I did not find where there would be a config file to influence
this.

Anyone has seen this, or is it just me?
Or is there a fix for this? Any ideas?

Thanks,
Matt T.
