  Just for the record, those messages seem normal to me!  I only notice 
the refcount message on my ppc64 because everything else has moved to a 
graphical login, but I'm sure I've seen them on the other boxes.  It 
doesn't seem to cause any problems.

  For me, the CID message is expected because I think I stopped building 
them ages ago - a quick look shows the directory does exist, but only 
contains fonts.dir and fonts.scale.

  Glad you resolved the problem.
