OK, tracked things down. Basically the xfs init script and 
fc-cache are both making each other think that the font information
in fonts.dir and fonts.cache-1 files are out of date, so 
all the users have to create their own fonts cache in 
$HOME/.fonts-cache-1.

rhgb is getting run without $HOME set, so it can't even look
in /root/.fonts.cache-1.

I think we can fix up the xfs init script and address the problem; 
should also make user logins work better, especially in 
NFS homedir situations.
