Description of problem:
When shutting down the correct sysfont doesn't get set until portmapper is run.
It would be nice if the sysfont could get set at the beginning of the shutdown.
This is very similar to bug 75535 (thanks for fixing) but concerns shutdown
instead of bootup.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use another language than English
3. Check out the strange UTF8 characters
This shouldn't make any difference; it should have already been set correctly on
boot. How are you shutting down?

the computer, not when you shut down, although the strings are the same.
I have to add that this doesn't happen everytime. I'm desperately trying to

Most of the times the sysfont is correct, which makes it harder to debug, but
also makes the bug less serious. :)
Closing bugs on older, no longer supported, releases. Apologies for any lack of
I suspect this has to do with GDM running on a terminal that hasn't been
This should be fixed post-FC4.
