Its not just you.  I've had this problem too since upgrading to xfce-4.02.

For instance, if I roll the mouse over an icon in the tool bar, a small, yellow tool-tip shows up but there is no text in it.  Same thing if I click on any menu, the icons for each menu item show up fine but there is no text beside it.  I can launch applications, like the mail client I'm using for this message, and the text in them is just fine.
