Version: 4.10.2-3
Severity: important
File: xfce

Dear Maintainer,
*** Please consider answering these questions, where appropriate ***

   * What led up to the situation?
This occurs after restarting from a hibernated session or from a suspended session.

   * What exactly did you do (or not do) that was effective (or
Have not been able to get the fonts fixed in the same session, but restarting XOrg seems to fix the issue.

   * What was the outcome of this action?
Restarting XOrg works, but it is a bit heavy handed.

   * What outcome did you expect instead?
Expected to be able to suspend/hibernate and after restoring have no font corruption.

Is it possible that there is something wrong with the font server?
Is it possible to restart the font server and force it to re-render all fonts?

Strangely, doesn't effect xterm, but does effect emacs and other apps.
