Ok, I followed the right procedure, then :)

I feel I'm more and more lost....
Doesn't an application simply ask for "Arial, 24pt"? Well, I guess
that it's not so simple, right?

Considering that I know nothing about how windows deals with fonts and
little about how X11 deals with fonts, is there a remote chance that
by looking at the source code I may (accidentally) fix something? :)
Where should I look? In any case the worst it can happen is that I
waste 1 hr or 2....

I'll try, hoping I don't hit another unreadable font (at startup it
looks like wine finds 861 fonts installed on my system, I never knew I
had so many...).
