Font problem under Linux

Hi,

in my installation of mathematica 6 under Suse SLED 10 most non-
alphanumeric glyphs (for example
'->', '@', '/', '=A7', ...) are displayed as empty boxes if the used
font is a bold face font.Since the default font
of input cells is "Courier Bold", this is quite annoying

What is going wrong here?

Thank you in advance, Olaf

The details of my system are:
- Suse SLED 10
- Mathematica 6.0
- Font of input cells is "Courier Bold 12", Writing System: Any
- bash> xlsfonts |grep -i -- -wri-mathematica|uniq|wc -l
   32
- bash> xlsfonts |grep -i courier|uniq|wc -l
   654
- bash> xset q
   /home/y1rog/.fonts,
   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/misc:unscaled,
   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi:unscaled,
   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/100dpi:unscaled,
   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/Type1,
   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/URW,
   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/truetype,
   /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/uni:unscaled,
   /opt/kde3/share/fonts,
   /usr/local/share/fonts
- Every font directory from above has a valid fonts.dir and for ttf
and pfa, pfb files a fonts.scale file
- bash> set | grep -E 'LC|LANG'
   LANG=C
   LC_NUMERIC=C
