Try Solaris9 patch 113098-04 ( the Xsun/Xrender patch )
and enter the patch number. ( you will need to have a sunsolve account )
I Had the problem with disapearing Fonts on Solaris 9 12/02
using staroffice 6 in any windowmanager.
The bug was solved with this patch.
I am running Xft 2 / fontconfig2 / Xrender / KDE 3.1.1 now on
Solaris 9 04/03 / Sunblade 100 /Expert 3D Lite
Without any fontproblems.
