If what christm said doesn't work use your reinstall discs to run an Archive Install, that should fix it up. This seems like it's a problem with your fonts.

You could also try downloading a Combo installer of 10.4.9 from Apple's website and install that.

Couldn't this be a corrupted Finder plist file, guys? Or again a corrupted cache in the system, font and/or user. I wonder...
