Ah ha, yes, those fonts may or may not have changed depending on which
window manager you're using and what you have in your ~/.Xdefaults file.
The old chimera picked it's own font (12 pixel high Helvetica) unless you
had a specific font set in your .Xdefaults. The new chimera tries to
figure out which window manager you're using and use its fonts, or
fallback to screen-size depdendent defaults. Unfortunately, it was
missing support for the gnome2 desktop that ships by default in Red Hat.
That will be fixed in the next snapshot (probably tommorrow).
