[Pkg-haskell-maintainers] Bug#669175: user error (createFontSet)

Package: libghc-xmonad-contrib-dev
Version: 0.10-3+b1
Severity: normal
File: xmonad-contrib

With no change to my xmonad config, I'm suddenly getting repeated
problems to do with "user error (createFontSet)". It seems that anything
in xmonad that tries to use a font is failing this way. This breaks
title bar decorations (and in turn causes all window layouts using them
to fail), the shellPrompt, etc.

I'm using the default font, -misc-fixed-*-*-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*
I can load this font in xfontsel without any problems. I am not using a
standalone font server.

Restarting X temporarily clear the problem up, but after a little while
using the system it again begins to fail. Most strange. I don't know how
to debug. This bug might really be in haskell-x11?
