Thanks for the tip, but I didn't have an .xftconfig to delete.

If you can run xterm bun -fa Monaco gives "bus error" this means that your Xwindows get wrong information about the fonts to be used (my understanding, may be wrong). I have done some experimenting with ~/.xftconfig and found that the string
dir "~/Library/Fonts" results in the bus error. Try to find all your xftconfig files (case insensitive) and see whether they are all consistent. You can also try to find out what passes the font directpry names to the xwindows (I do not know what).
