Why no STIX fonts?

I have several machines running fedora f14. 2 of them produce plots fine with
STIX, but 1 doesn't, but gives:
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/font_manager.py:1242: UserWarning:
findfont: Font family ['STIXSizeOneSym'] not found. Falling back to Bitstream
Vera Sans
  (prop.get_family(), self.defaultFamily[fontext]))
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/font_manager.py:1252: UserWarning:
findfont: Could not match :family=Bitstream Vera
Sans:style=normal:variant=normal:weight=normal:stretch=normal:size=12.0.
Returning /usr/share/fonts/thai-scalable/Waree-Oblique.ttf
  UserWarning)
/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/matplotlib/font_manager.py:1242: UserWarning:
findfont: Font family ['STIXSizeThreeSym'] not found. Falling back to Bitstream
Vera Sans
  (prop.get_family(), self.defaultFamily[fontext]))
...

On that machine I have:
Package stix-variants-fonts-1.0.0-1.fc14.noarch already installed and latest
version
Package stix-pua-fonts-1.0.0-1.fc14.noarch already installed and latest version
Package stix-fonts-1.0.0-1.fc14.noarch already installed and latest version
Package stix-fonts-doc-1.0.0-1.fc14.noarch already installed and latest version
Package stix-sizes-fonts-1.0.0-1.fc14.noarch already installed and latest
version
Package stix-integrals-fonts-1.0.0-1.fc14.noarch already installed and latest
version

rpm -q python-matplotlib
python-matplotlib-1.0.0-2.fc14.x86_64

Any ideas how to debug this?

You can try deleting matplotlib's font cache in ~/.matplotlib/fontList.cache.

If that doesn't work, set the rcParam "verbose.level" to "debug-annoying" and send us the output...
