X11 cyrillic font problem

After upgrading from Beowulf to Chimaera if there is a cyrillic character in the title bar of a window it is rendered as a block font.png
The font path in /etc/X11/xorg.conf is set:

Section "Files"                                                                 
    ModulePath   "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"                                         
    FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/X11/misc"                                     
    FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/X11/cyrillic"                                 
    FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi/:unscaled"                         
    FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi/:unscaled"                         
    FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/X11/Type1"                                   
    FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/X11/100dpi"                                   
    FontPath     "/usr/share/fonts/X11/75dpi"                                   
    FontPath     "built-ins"                                                     
EndSection

My locale -a:

C
C.UTF-8
en_US.utf8
POSIX
ru_RU.utf8
ru_UA.utf8

What's the problem?

Re: X11 cyrillic font problem

Does removing /etc/X11/xorg.conf help? That file has been unnecessary for quite a while now.

Which font is used for the window title bar? Does it have Cyrillic support?

Solved after reinstalling Xorg completely.
