remote FrontEnd fonts problem leads to core dump




anyone know how to solve this problem??

I have Mathematica for Students Linux 3.0.0 installed.... I have
installed the Mathematica fonts on a Digital Unix 4.0A system running
CDE...


on the Alpha system, 
xset +fp /usr/local/lib/mathematica/X xset +fp
/usr/local/lib/mathematica/Type1 xset fp rehash

then I telnet to Linux machine and start mathematica Front End comes up
ok...palette has correct fonts.... Plot3D[Sin[x y],{x,-6,6},{y,-6,6}]
looks good....

However, when I try Help->Find in Help Browser

[mlewis@tristan radiation_physics]$ mathematica Warning: Cannot convert
string "-dt-interface user-medium-r-normal-l*-*-*- *-*-*-*-*-*" to type
FontSet
Warning: Unable to load any usable fontset Warning: Cannot convert
string "-dt-interface user-medium-r-normal-l*-*-*- *-*-*-*-*-*" to type
FontList
Warning: Cannot convert string "-dt-interface
user-medium-r-normal-l*-*-*- *-*-*-*-*-*:" to type FontList
Segmentation fault (core dumped)
[mlewis@tristan radiation_physics]$ 


FWIW, every thing works ok with the old Dxsession....


any clues would be appreciated
