not sure if it's related, anyway I had a similar problem
after the update to the new fontconfig: all apps (xterm, rox, firefox)
took a long time to start due to caching issues.

After I rejmerged fontconfig and a run fc-cache, the problem
was gone. A symptom is that running fc-cache as root shows
something like "Cannot update cache".

Hope it helps,
