oh. I suppose it is fair enough that installing any fonts
on windows can have bad effects. 

But, OTOH, should one expose the whole of fontconfig-available
fonts to wine? A lot of them may be dubious to various extent. 

If ukai is affected, I would suspect uming (also from Arphic)
would be the same? and how many non-english fonts one want to 
"work-around" like this?

Thanks - but I also have uming, and a a fair number of other fonts
shipped from fedora for non-english. (over 100).
