I also can confirm the arial font bug, but I seriously doubt this is an issue
with Wine, as other software seem to find the fonts just dandy.  Likey the
programmers for EVE are taking shortcuts instead of using discovery routines to
get the currently installed locations for fonts, they are simply linking to
where they 'Know they are".

On win systems, it's a near 100% safe bet arial will be available, and that it
will be in c:\windows\fonts, but on GNU/Linux systems it is almost imperative
that software devs use discovery routines to find out what fonts are available
and where they are.

Having said this; the workaround by copying Arial/arial, or putting a sym-link
to it(depending on your security settings), into the
.wine/c_drive/windows/fonts folder works like a charm.

It may be good practice to script a something to create symlinks for all
mstcorefonts into Wine's windows/fonts folder for safety from 'errant' coders.
