I have the same problem, however, since I have several computers I
checked that:
1) running Mathematica on the (x86_64) machine in a local X session
dies
2) running math (the kernel only) in terminal local to the machine
works
3) running Mathematica via remote ssh session from a fedora 5 box
works!

My suspicion is very much font/font-server related at the moment.
FC9 has xfs off by default for some reason...

cheers,
