The fonts in fluxbox window titles have changed.

And in gv, or xpdf (gv is an Xaw app, xpdf is lesstif based), I get:
 Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--*-140-*-*-P-*-ISO8859-1" to type FontStruct

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-times-medium-r-normal--14-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1" to type FontStruct

I don't recall having those error messages before the libXfont update.
Is it a bug or a normal side-effect?
