I encountered this old threat (attached at the end of this mail) that
discusses the problem I have now...

It doesn't provide a solution though...

Check /tmp/XWin.log... I suspect you will see an error about the default
font "fixed", or something like that.  Check the FAQ for an answer to
error message, then send in the bottom sections of your XWin.log file
if you
can't fix the error on your own.
