I encounter the same issue on natty.

I use a slightly different way to select the font (in case it matters). I use

  (setq my-default-font "-unknown-UbuntuBeta Mono-normal-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1")

which ultimately ends up in default-frame-alist

Note that I previously used:

  (setq my-default-font "-unknown-Ubuntu Beta Mono 21-normal-normal-*-14-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1")

Deleting the bold-italic font from /usr/share/fonts/truetype/ubuntu-font-family made it work again, so +1 on the workaround.
