I don't know if this is solved already but I have been badly irritated
by this bug the last days. I almost couldn't load any plugin...

I just found a workaround, by accident :),  that solves the problem for
me every time: 

$ unset LANG 

before starting pd, 

I normally have LANG set to sv_SE for swedish language.

I need to restart pd to get text rendering back. I found two posts (bugreports) about this issue in the listarchives (may 2004) but nothing that could have been enlighten me on how to solve this problem. Can someone help me out here? I already tryed to move back to pd 0.35 and plugin~ 0.1 - same symtoms there.
