Are you by chance using Red Hat Linux (if yes, which version? I ask
because it uses the xfs font server by default in recent versions)? It
should be configured to use the font server in /etc/X11/XF86Config, the
relevant snippets are:
--- 8< --- /etc/X11/XF86Config ---
--- 8< ---
All other font paths are commented out in mine. Xnest should use
/etc/X11/XF86Config as well.
Maybe you use an Xnest from a different version or a differently packages
one (e.g. searching for XF86Config in /etc instead of /etc/X11 or vice
