There've been a lot of people reporting this type of behavior in Debian
unstable after upgrading to XFree86 4.1.0. The best advice I can give
(I haven't seen the problem myself) is to restart the X font server and
also the X server itself.
You can use "/etc/init.d/xfs restart" to restart xfs.
If you're logging in with xdm, you may have to kill X with
Ctrl-Alt-Backspace (after you end your session), or use Ctrl-Alt-F1 to get
to a text console, then type "/etc/init.d/xdm restart". Similar commands
would apply for people logging in with gdm, kdm, wdm or login.app.
If you use "startx", then just end your X session, then type "starx"
