Hmm... I didn't have fontconfig-2.2.0-2 installed locally (I was using a 
2.92 build), so this seemed like a logical exlanation of the problem. 
However, I installed fontconfig-2.2.0-2 and XFree86-xserv-4.3.0-47 and 
could not reproduce the described problem.  Please try reinstalling 
fontconfig-2.2.0-2 and see if you can continue to reproduce the problem.
