with this info i went through all my OSD themes, one by one and sure
enough, then ones that give me trouble have the fontfile specificed in

Gray-OSD and Retro-OSD from myththemes and an old copy of
projectgrayhem-OSD that i have downloaded from the web before it became
part of themes.

thanks for the workaround!
i wish i knew what was wrong though.
i will test anything to try and resolve it.
