Running xubuntu 12.10. Sometimes the text under the desktopshortcuts are disappearing.
When i put a usb stick in the computer, text is gone on a few items and the right mouse button menu on the desktop contains no text.
The only way to get an solution is downgrading libcairo2.
But than there are software conflicts when installing software.
Vga card is nvidia.
Could it be glx?

I don't know about 'buntu (deserted that ship long ago) but disappearing text - and not only on desktop icons - has been an issue for me on Debian wheezy with the nouveau driver. Installing the proprietary nvidia driver fixed that as well as some other rendering issues.
