On windows you search for the .fonts.cache-1 file, mine was labeled .fonts under "C:\Documents and Settings\Owner" and once you find it delete it, gimp rebuilds the cache file when you start gimp and your fonts should be fine... during that session anyway, you would / will need to do this for each time you need fonts to be correct or the fonts return and get messed up.
Please, anyone with more information on this and a complete fix please share, I'm not sure if this is because I have gimp themed or its some other issue but I and others with the same problem would love to get it fixed! Maybe some one here with the same problem could help me to see if there are similarities in our set up and pin point it.

well is possible do even more harmful thing in windows...but luckily in this case it will not be easy figure out how...but ...Yes... all win fonts could be deleted, and then the computer will not be able to send or read any text ,not even to display the name or the menu of your programs... (It was done in a flash to my boss computer after he fired a vendicative guy )
However the install Win CD could be used to repair similar problems without reformatting everything
