[OS X TeX] fonts in leopard

I upgraded to leopard and now there seems to be a problem with the  
Some fonts are replaced by Helvetica or something like that. I first  
thought that this was
related to TeXniscope but it also shows up with Preview.
When opening a pdf file with preview the displayed fonts may vary each  
time I open up the document.
So while TeXniscope never displays correctly, Preview occasionally  
does (it works after logging out), except for some italic font in the  
bibliography which is not displayed correctly.
Very weird. Logging out momentarily helps but when I open up  
TeXniscope again, it's there again.
Console:  "ATSFontFindFromContainer failed: count = 2". (Preview)
and "Unable to use font : no glyphs present" (TeXniscope).
Any suggestions ? Has anyone else upgraded to leopard and seen the  
same thing ?
I could reinstall everything (not an upgrade, if that helped) but  
maybe there is a simpler solution.
I first thought that this was TeX-related, but it could also be a more  
general 'leopard bug'.

Could also someone explain what the paths TeXniscope should be (for  
intel macs) ?

Could this also have something to do with leopard's "automatic font  
activation" or the choice of what the default install location of  
fonts ought to be (user or computer) ?.

I am using gwTeX installed via i-installer.

Many thanks,
