Wine only finds one font file
(/home/dank/c/windows/Fonts/AdvMicr.ttf). My guess is that previously
you'd been defaulting to X11 fonts and then some app installed this
font, Wine now sees this and uses client side fonts. The problem is
that things don't look great when you've only got one font to choose
from, especially if it's a symbol type font :)
If you add a [FontDirs] section to the config file with lines of the
where the directories contain TrueType font files then hopefully
things should look better.
