after doing a DU today I encountered an error were my menu bar has no text or icons. This occurs in libreoffice and my lotus notes. I am sure there are other programs this occurs in also but i have not found them yet. I suspect it is something to do with gtk but i am unsure and very unsure how to get them to come back. Any suggestions? Thank you.

edit**
when I run libreoffice on command line I get no errors of any kind. I was hoping to see if there was a library missing or something that concerned the icons set.

Same problem here.

When running libreoffice from the command line I get:
QGtkStyle was unable to detect the current GTK+ theme.
and text in menus is still missing.

I experience no problems when running libreoffice under fluxbox or icewm.

I rely very heavily on Libreoffice for my work and this issue has made the program practically useless.

I no longer have this problem in LibreOffice after a DU today. And my previous unreadable tooltip problem also appears to be solved.
      Code:
$ dpkg -l libcairo2 libreoffice

|/ Err?=(none)/Reinst-required (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
