In my last reply I forgot to mention that I had the same problem using
various window managers, none of which included Gnome (Metacity).  It
may be a fonts.conf issue with Dejavu/Bitstream Vera fonts.  Try turning
off font-smoothing, or a different font.

I also had problems using Dejavu in xterm.  In other words I don't think
this is an Emacs issue.
