My favourite mono/.net application dies with 'Style Regular isn't supported by font Tahoma' in 1.1.28.

I did a git bisect and

was the entry that breaks, but just reversing it in 1.1.28 does not fix the problem - i.e. more problematic commits later?; however, replacing the wine-shipped tahoma fonts with those from Vista does cure the problem; so does simply deleting them from $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/windows/fonts (and allow substitution from system fonts happen, I think).

I don't know why a german translation would affect my environment (LANG=en_GB.utf8) and setting LANG=C does not fix the problem.

In any case, the correct fix is probably working out what vista-shipped tahoma does which differs from wine-shipped tahoma? Anybody has any thought on this issue?
