The problem seems to come from the debian "x-ttcidfont" package; the bogus
entries are in "/var/lib/defoma/x-ttcidfont-conf.d/dirs/TrueType/fonts.dir".

Removing that directory from the font-path solves the problem.  I've removed
the package too (I think the only reason I installed it was to use those
fonts with the old pre-xft emacs).

I'll report this as a bug with x-ttcidfont; maybe a note should be added to
PROBLEMS as well?



XML is like violence.  If it doesn't solve your problem, you're not
using enough of it.
