kprinter dialog bad fonts

I've been quite happily using Open Office and kprinter for some time. However
I recently upgraded to kde 3.1.2 and open office 1.1 beta2 (under linux
gentoo) and now when I print to kprinter in openoffice, the dialog appears to
be using a bad font.
Every character in the dialog is displayed as a square (the way characters
usually appear when the current font doesn't actually contain a
representation of that character)
If I print from a kde application the dialog is perfectly legible. And the
same goes for running kprinter from a konsole.
So the problem seems to be specific to open office (I don't have any other
non-kde apps that I print from that I can test this with)
Theres no error messages being sent to stdout by either of them.
Like I said, this problem has only surfaced with the latest version of kde and
open office (I upgraded both at the same time, so I'm not really sure which's
at fault, though I have to wonder how openoffice could cause this), the
printer is setup the same way it's always been, that is, standard generic
printer, print command "kprinter --stdin"
If anyone has any ideas I'd appreciate them.

Wait: Did you know that there's a direct correlation between the decline of
Spirograph and the rise in gang activity? Think about it.
