Bug#668993: libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0: Font rendering corruption?

I am experiencing some serious font rendering issues.
I am not entirely sure whether this is the correct package, but since
libgdk-pixbuf2.0-0 is a common
dependency for all of the applications where I experience the issue,
this is my best guess.
Here is a screenshot where the issue is visible:
Usually the problems begin when I open my GMAIL in iceweasel, but the
same happens with epiphany.
Text is illegible and while moving the mouse cursor around (on redraws
caused by css, probably) or
scrolling, other text becomes illegible too, but some text turns normal.
When this happens, other text in applications like gnome-terminal get
garbled as well, as is visible
in the screenshot. Sometimes, window titles are affected as well.
However, text in Qt applications (such as konqueror) are not affected.
Nor is text in java applications
(such as PS3 Media Server).
Unfortunately I can't pinpoint the moment when this started happening,
but I think this has been
happening for at least a month.
At first I thought it had something to do with the video driver
(xserver-xorg-video-radeon), but since
only GNOME applications are affected, I ruled this possibility out (or
at least highly improbable).
Please let me know if you need any further information.

PS. exim4 was not configured correctly, so this is copied from the
mail queue and pasted into gmail itself. I hope this is okay.
