OK, it's sorted out now :)

It seems like the default font was corrupted somehow, either that or  
it was set to something weird... Having looked at the layout of a  
readable qtconfig under Linux, I was able to click in the right places  
to set a legible font for QT.

Thanks for your input, at least I now know about XQuartz and have the  
latest version installed.
