To remember (and use) your user specific AA configuration, a file 
"$HOME/.fonts.conf" must be written.  What are the permissions of your $HOME 
directory.  Unless there is some reason for having it different, it should be 
owned by <user>:<user> and have permissions >= 700:

E.G. from my system:

[jrt at localhost home]$ ls -ld jrt
drwxr-xr-x   65 jrt      jrt          4096 Sep 24 17:33 jrt
