A fresh net install from "rawhide" reveals that the issue is still not
fixed in "xorg-x11-fonts-ISO8859-1-100dpi-1.0.0-1" and

Super-DOH!  How the....

xorg-x11-fonts brown paper bag bug #1 right here.  Yep.

Thanks for reporting!  I had a quick look at this one a while back, but
didn't spot anything obvious, so assumed it might possibly be transient
rawhide font configuration issue, which we've had a few of now.

I investigated it deeper just now though, and discovered that the rpm scripts
for the ISO8859-1 fonts were completely missing.  Ugh.  So much for being
extremely careful and diligent during the creation of the new font packages. ;)

Ah well, she's fixed now in 1.0.0-3 and later, and should be in the rawhide
sync tomorrow.

Thanks again, and apologies for any inconveniences caused to everyone due
to this!
