gnucash debian 1.6.1-3 crashes on report generation

When I try to generate one of the expense barcharts or piecharts,
Gnucash crashes.  When I run it with the --debug option, its last message is:

** CRITICAL **: file gnome-font.c: line 194 (gnome_font_new): assertion `face != NULL' failed.
I can't find the default fonts needed by Guppi.
In 99% of all cases, this means that there is a problem with
your installed version of gnome-print.

According to dselect, the "gnome-print" package has been replaced by
various "libgnomeprint*" packages.  I am running gnucash 1.6.1-3,
libgnomeprint{15,-bin,-data} 0.29-5, and gsfonts 6.0-2, on debian unstable.

The reports had been working in the last version of Gnucash I had been
running on debian -- I think it was 1.6.0.

I tried doing "apt-get dist-upgrade" today, and after getting
everything upgraded, and confirming that both gnucash and its
dependants were up to date, I still got the bug.

"Rav would never cross a bridge when an idolator was on it; he said, 'Maybe he
will be judged and I will be taken with him.'  Shmuel would only cross a
bridge when an idolator was on it; he said, 'Satan cannot rule two nations [at
once].'  Rabbi Yannai would examine [the bridge] and cross."  --Shabbat 32a
