This is not an error in R but in your X11 fonts setup.  It is R reporting 
your configuration problem to you.

What dpi is your screen?  If more than 75dpi (very likely these days), do 
you have 100dpi fonts installed and in your path?  We have seen that 
configuration mistake cause this on SuSe before.
