I specialize in ridiculous.  Good news, I guess, is that I dug up a monitor, and, walked it downstairs with a keyboard and mouse and attached it.  The effect with the BitstreamVeraSans and ComicSans fonts are the same.  Maybe it likes serfed fonts?  
So that means that it is not some funky X11 over the wire problem with the Mac and Windows X11 servers problem.  That's good.  
I have no idea then why.  Are these fonts part of the image?  Is it some funky binary format that for some reason Coq is mis-reading?  
I built a stack VM and I get the same result with a Squeak 5.3 image.  
Just so we're clear I'm working with this version:
