This behavior is due to an X server bug, (which is still open), but was only
exposed due to a specific way text was drawn in version 1.2.0 of cairo. The
newer cairo version (1.2.2) fixes the bug:
The next update of fc6 will have a newer cairo, so the bug should be gone then.
In the meantime, you could upgrade cairo or else switch to antialiased fonts,
(since the X server bug only occurs for fonts without antialiasing).
