Well, I'm not sure if this is the same type of problem...

I just got truetype fonts installed (I'm running linux [redhat 7/8]).

I'm building kde-3.1.4. (I like to build things myself ;-))
I'm using xfstt 1.6.

But when I enable truetype fonts, none of the kde-3.1.4 applications run -- they
all start up, but quickly crashes,  the crash dialog doesn't stay up...

When I disable the truetype fonts, no problem... 

I was going to ask the KDE folks about this...
