Error in text.default(x, y, txt, cex = cex, font = font) : 
        X11 font at size 16 could not be loaded

Attempting to plot dataframe trees fails with error message as shown. 

Get similar message (but font size 22) when run demo(graphics).

Got same error with rpm of R from CRAN linux/SuSe/9.2 (with and without latest
patch) and with downloaded and compiled source code from CRAN (with and without
latest patch).

Is problem with R or fonts on my PC? Windows 2000 version of R on another
machine works OK
