It looks like some font rendering problem to me, but I don't know what I 
should expect to see, never having used either of these before.

It looks like maybe they're trying to use a font that is no longer there, and 
falling back to something inappropriate.

I'd have a look at what you get with

	strace -eopen $name_of_application

Look for any font-related bits that say something like

	ENOENT (No such file or directory)

and see if there is any clue there.

A wild guess to be sure, but it might prove fruitful.
