I don't know whether this is relevant, but here goes:  From time to time 
I had the same problem under Windows, and it was always due to a font 
problem.  (On Windows, I was using Adobe Type Manager, and somehow 
whenever I installed a new version of Mathematica, it didn't recognize 
where the fonts were; and the solution was always to uninstall the 
existing Mathematica fonts, then copy the Mathematica fonts from within 
the Mathematica SystemFiles subtree to the normal place for font files.)
