It seems that your X, perhaps the module supporting TTF, has
a bug.  I don't know an easy workaround for such a problem.
Checking each font if it is surely openable or not in the
font-selection routine is too much costly.  Changing the
order of font drivers from x,xft to xft,x will solve
(actually just hide) the problem.  But, why don't you remove
such unusable fonts from your X font path?
