For those daring people out there, here is an issue I ran into when I
upgraded from openSuSE 12.2 to 12.3....

Both Designer (and Acrobat Reader) failed to load fonts correctly so all
text (menus, dialogues, etc) were nothing but boxes, even though the
application itself loaded fine.

The problem is pango! (I wasted over a day trying to mess with gtk and
themes thinking they were the issue...)

To fix, just run this as root and restart the application:

pango-querymodules > /etc/pango/pango.modules

Such a simple little file, but oh so important....
