that's strange, before i upgrade to gnome2 i had only gtk2 and it was running perfectly, i think it maybe a font related issue
good that it's working with you

a little comment:
Katoob doesn't react with ttf directly like yudit "that's handled by gtk"
gtk can't find your fonts, Actually i don't have any experience with the Debian internals "failed to get a copy too ;)"
wish to help more, but i think Nadim did it 1st.
