[Nouveau] missing text and icons with NV25

I'm using nouveau xf86-video-nouveau 0.0.10_git20091101-1 and
nouveau-drm 0.0.15_20091120-1 under Arch Linux with xorg-server
126.96.36.1991-1. My video card is recognized as "nVidia Corporation NV25GL
[Quadro4 750 XGL]".
X starts (with no apparent errors) but it's essentially unusable, since
it's missing all the icons on all the panels and toolbars, and no text
shows up at all. For example, I can start an xterm, since I know where
the icon is on the panel, and I can type commands, which by the cursor
movement seem to be working correctly, but there is no visible text in
the term. Popups (such as right-clicking on the main window) have some
clutter/video noise - but no text or icons. I see no obvious error
messages in the log or dmesg.
This seems similar to the report in Bug 14092
(https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=14092) but that was from
March 2008, so I figure the fix would be in the version I'm running.
If this is a known issue, feel free to point me to the documentation
I've obviously missed. Otherwise, what else should I post to assist
with troubleshooting? (I'll defer posting even xorg.conf and the Xorg
log until someone claims they will be of use.)
Thanks for any suggestions or assistance.
