In several programs, the wrong characters are being displayed. What do I mean? roxterm shows O as <i>v</i>. LibreOffice Calc shows ( as <i>i</i>. And then there's Firefox:
What the heck is wrong here and how do I fix it? I have the two en_US lines in /etc/locale.gen uncommented. That's the only thing I can think of.

It is obviously a problem with X using the pixman glyph cache now. A reboot did help here (presumable the cache was cleared by this).
Otherwise simply downgrade the X server.
To know or not to know ...
... the questions remain forever.
Yeah, that looks like the problem. It took a couple reboots for me, but this seems to have worked itself out now.
I guess I'm wrong. I'll just downgrade xorg for now.

No need to downgrade, just rebuild xorg-server with ABS with line 40 commented out in the PKGBUILD.
sudo abs cp -rp /var/abs/extra/xorg-server /tmp cd /tmp/xorg-server vim PKGBUILD makepkg -csi
