  I'm regularly updating KDE 3.5 branch for every week (by means of svn update
and recompile). I've never encountered a problem with unicode (but I don't use
Vera because they don't contain characters for my locale (czech)). However, 
using other fonts makes no problem, all characters including Kanji look OK.
  So, maybe
  - your KDE 3.5.4 package is broken
  - another upgrade broke it (both X (contains the fonts) as well as fontconfig
    can be guilty).
