 Same thing with LANG=C

 I suspect that seamonkey is less likely to show problems because it
is an old codebase that hte firefox devs discarded.

 Interesting.  Firefox just picks up 'monospace' and I don't see any
overrides for it in conf files.  Arora is happy with monospace.  If I
pick any random monospaced fonts in the firefox preferences it still
shows the problem.

 If I change fc_local.conf to
        <alias binding="same">
          <family>Liberation Sans Narrow</family>
        <!--  <family>Arial Narrow</family> -->
          <family>Arial Narrow</family>
then fontconfig is happy, but it doesn't affect this (not surprising
I guess - narrow isn't used that often)

 Thanks for the reply, but so far it doesn't seem to rule out any
possibilities for what is wrong :-(
