FAQ Section: Weird Bugs
  1. WARNING: Couldn't flush system prefs: [...] Couldn't get file lock.
  2. Poseidon crashes/ ends in a Blue Screen on Windows XP/2000
  3. UmlDoc just hangs...
  4. I'm having some strange repaint problems...
  5. How can I fix the toolbar display in the Metal look and feel?
  6. Why does type ahead not work in quicksearch?
  7. Poseidon crashes when trying to change font on Ubuntu Linux

    On Dapper the toxic fonts are Rekha-normal and aakar-MagNet these are in the ttf-gujarati-fonts package.

    To workaround this use: sudo apt-get remove ttf-gujarati-fonts

    Note: that this will harmlessly remove the meta-packages ubuntu-desktop and indic-fontsm.

    btw: the JVM failure apparently happens on the next font after the toxic ones. Hence the confusion about which font(s) was causing the failures in the earlier posts. Something to keep in mind if you need to track down other toxic fonts.
