i noticed the same thing happen to my setup, after upgrading to xorg.  in
my case acroread works.  unfortunately, i don't run mathematica or maple. 
however, for linux-opera, try adding the following settings in

[User Prefs]        <<----  under this section
Enable Core X Fonts=0
Enable Xft Fonts=1
Trust Qt FontSwitching=0

though i find that many pages in opera don't look quite as sharp as before,
this should make your opera fonts look acceptable.   from within opera,
you can also tinker with alt+p > fonts in order to better align the output
to your tastes.

hopefully someone will suggest a more general (ie. system-wide) fix for
your issue.  in the meantime, i would suggest taking a gander at
your/var/log/Xorg.0.log for any error and warning messages.
