My guess is that your Red Hat installation choices led to the X
font server including Cyrillic fonts on your font path.  To make
sure, see this FAQ.

If that is the case, then removing the Cyrillic font directory 
and restarting the font server should fix the problem.

If your experiences tell you otherwise, please do not hesitate
to contact Wolfram Research Techincal Support:
