Mathematica crash on HP

 On HP/UX 10.20B with mathematica 4.0 I get the following error:

%158 /home/sunlocal/mathematica/Executables/HP-RISC: mathematica
X Error of failed request:  BadFont (invalid Font parameter)
  Major opcode of failed request:  56 (X_ChangeGC)
  Resource id in failed request:  0xffffffff
  Serial number of failed request:  40801
  Current serial number in output stream:  40806

The error occurs whenever I hit a font related sub-menu or a cell related
sub-menu and maybe others.

Mathematica dies when I do this. Does anybody know what causes this or how
to fix it?
