Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Redhat 7.1 beta (Fisher)

similarly named (but slightly different
directories) do exist.

Expected Results:  Actual directory names should match what X is searching

The following symbolic links removed further error messages:
/usr/share/fonts/default/ was given a symbolic link to:

/usr/share/fonts/default/TrueType/ was given a symbolic link to:
