Issues after installing C&C3

today I installed PoN using the online repository.
I installed C&C3 -Kanes revenge and/or Tiberium wars.

No matter what on restarting PoL I get an error message saying:

xpm malformed colour definition at line 2

If I start PoL using the console I can see:
(python:28941): Pango-WARNING **: Invalid UTF-8 string passed to pango_layout_set_text()

Same message appears if I click on "using advanced configurator plugin".

After the message appeared the first time I can not start C&C 3 and on doing a restart of PoL it crashes:
:~$ playonlinux
PlayOnLinux v3.6

Checking python :                     [ Ok ]

(python:21105): Pango-WARNING **: Invalid UTF-8 string passed to pango_layout_set_text()
The program 'python' received an X Window System error.
This probably reflects a bug in the program.
The error was 'BadAlloc (insufficient resources for operation)'.
(Details: serial 615 error_code 11 request_code 53 minor_code 0)
(Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)

I'm running:
- Linux 2.6.28-15-generic #49-Ubuntu SMP Tue Aug 18 19:25:34 UTC 2009 x86_64 GNU/Linux
- NVidia GeForce 8600GT, 512 MB RAM, PCI-Express 16x
- NVidia Driver Linux-x86_64 v 180.44
- gnome desktop (tried with and without desktop effects)
set to de_DE.UTF-8

Any hint on my issue?
