I'd be interested in seeing a screenshot.
I just upgraded Dapper with KDE 3.5.5 and after that all Gnome
applications and dialogs had horrible fonts. It was cured by going to
the KDE settings/appearance &themes/fonts, unchecking the antialiasing
checkbox, applying the change, rechecking the antialiasing checkbox,
applying the change and then restarting X.
Another thing I can think of is post your .fonts.conf file, there are
several things you can try there. It may not be set up as well as you
had on Dapper.
