thanks for your quick reply. i checked the fonts-paths and could not
find anything odd about it, neither did the xorg.0.log complain about
anything in combination with fonts.
i ended up in reinstalling freetype2 and fontconfig, what finally solved
the problem, although i have no explanation for this. hope this can help
thanks for your support!
