I cannot see any text in the UI, here's the output from a Demo run on Arch Linux.

chi ~ % Self -s /usr/share/self/0/Demo-4.4.snap

As the VM has changed lately, is this still present?

Its not a VM problem per se but caused by Arial being in the new font system not the classic X fonts which Self uses. The latest build of the image should be better at picking a default if it can't find what it wants, but will still complain.
