On Debian Lenny I haven't label/fonts on tags etc. I was deleted all old
config, testing with a new user and I still have the same problem. but if
I launch wmii with user root all works fine. Any idea?

3.6 Release -> Same error.
wmii-20071003 -> Same error.
wmii+ixp-20070516 -> Works perfect. <-- see tags.

Thanks in advance.
