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).
