I just found myself having the same problem reported by Berthold below, but
using Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty Narwhal), running LKB remotely. The LKB window
would crash when attempting to open, leaving the message "Error: Xlib:
BadValue". Locally removing the ttf-droid package as suggested solved the
problem, thanks for sharing this Berthold.
