That's odd because the same code that sets the working source browser
items is also setting the non-working ones.

Are you using a recent version of Wing IDE and the version of GTK that
comes with Wing (it's the one used by default, unless you've manually
changed it)?

Maybe this is some odd font encoding problem.  In Wing IDE 1.1.3 at later,
you can give the full X font spec for the gui.display-font-name preference
(the gui.display-font-size pref is then ignored).  A font spec looks like


Running xfontsel is one way to determine the font spec.  Try making sure
you include the encoding (the iso8859-1 part in the above example), as
some X servers seem to do odd things when that's missing.

Hope that helps.
