It was installed with yast2 almost always just following the defaults... and
I have not done major changes yet...

yes I did... the only thing I thought to be eventually relevant was the tip
to update the freetype2-rpm... did that w/o any visible impact...
I have in the meanwhile tried to start an xterm with the same long font
description from the text-tool dialog and it won't show the fonts either...
so it is not a gimp-issue, obviously...
But what I don't understand is this: How can I use those fonts in kmail and
how is the Gimp able to display the fonts correctly the text tool dialog, but
not able to use them at the same time?

Unfortunately, I have never had the books for SuSE 7.3. The last release I
bought was 7.0 and I gave the applications manual to my mother after I set up
a Linux box for her...
