Bug Description

[cc'ing Sebastien because this affects a Gnome package]

On an up to date Hoary system, double clicking on a font in Nautilus doesn't do
anything because the gnome-font-viewer program segfaults. This results in the
mouse cursor being stuck as a watch until the startup notification times out.
This is due to a bug in the libxft library that has since been fixed upstream in
CVS, but I don't know if a new tarball release is available:
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1951
    https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=1958

The attachment on the first bug should fix the problem. It would be nice to get
this fixed for Hoary.
