I recently upgraded my version of the Gimp to 1.1.24 (from the Helix Gnome
site) and lost the ability to add text to my images. The text tool seems to
find the fonts OK, but when I type my text and hit OK, I get something like:

Font '-bitstream-courier-medium-r-normal-*-*-420-1-1-m-*-iso8859-1' not

If I type xset -q, I get:

Keyboard Control:
  auto repeat:  on    key click percent:  0    LED mask:  00000000
  auto repeat delay:  500    repeat rate:  5
  auto repeating keys:  00ffffffdffffbbf
  bell percent:  50    bell pitch:  400    bell duration:  100
Pointer Control:
  acceleration:  2/1    threshold:  4
Screen Saver:
  prefer blanking:  yes    allow exposures:  yes
  timeout:  600    cycle:  600
  default colormap:  0x23    BlackPixel:  0    WhitePixel:  16777215
Font Path:
Bug Mode: compatibility mode is disabled
DPMS (Energy Star):
  Standby: 0    Suspend: 0    Off: 600
  DPMS is Enabled
  Monitor is On

This looks OK. I see my font directories in the font path. The fonts.dir
file in my Type1 directory says:

UTRG____.pfa -adobe-utopia-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-iso8859-1

c0611bt_.pfb -bitstream-courier-bold-i-normal--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859-1

Again, this looks OK. What is going on here? The Gimp worked until I
upgraded. What do I have to change with the upgrade to re-enable the fonts?
