           Summary: Tahoma entry in registry, but tahoma related errors re-
                    occur followed by registry entry vanishing
           Product: Wine
           Version: 0.9.47.
          Platform: PC-x86-64
               URL: http://www.invelos.com/Downloads.aspx
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P2
         Component: wine-misc
        AssignedTo: wine-bugs at winehq.org
        ReportedBy: Stuart at houseofanime.org

The recent wine release (0.9.47) mentioned a change relating to the Tahoma font
- a font which causes issues for one of my applications, DVD Profiler. To se if
this resolved the issue, I tried upgrading from wine 0.9.46 to 0.9.47 with a
fresh .wine directory to see what happened.

In 0.9.46, the following would be observed behaviour with a typical install:
1) Run winecfg as normal
2) Install gecko using winetricks
3) Run setup.exe for DVD Profiler
4) Go through installation without issues
5) Run DVD Profiler and be inundated with 'invalid floating point' errors.
6) Kill application.
7) Add tahoma.ttf to fonts directory
8) Add tahoma entry to registry under
9) Run DVD Profiler, get one 'invalid floating point' error (bug 8460), and
then the application runs (mostly) as expected.

In 0.9.47, I confirmed that a) the font directory was empty, and b) the tahoma
registry entry as described under step 8 above existed after running winecfg,
without me having to enter it. I then ran a similar process to that described
1) - 4) as before
5) Unexpectedly got same response

!!! Checking, the registry entry that was confirmed before installing DVD
Profiler was gone!

6+) as before.

In summary, the tahoma registry entry appeared at winecfg and then vanished
when it was required. Otherwise, performance was as 0.9.46.
