I received an email from a user that indicated they only saw this missing text problem with the default font (which uses transparency.)  The alternate font (Shift-F10 to toggle) seems to work fine.  So this may be a transparency problem that has been recently introduced?

I'd try strace to see if it fails to find some font-related file,
possibly the font loader plugin.
