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.
