Hm. Have you ever messed with fontconfig yourself? (The main file is
/etc/fonts/fonts.conf, I think, but there is also config in ~/.fonts or
~/.fontconfig or something like that.)

It sounds like the fontconfig configuration file is messed up in some way,
and if it isn't your doing the simplest solution would be to rm all its
config files and reinstall it.

I don't have a copy of ssh-askpass handy or I'd analyze it for you.
