[Wine] Wine Font Problem with VB app in Ubuntu

I have been trying to run a VB6 application in Ubuntu using Wine, but it 
has a significant font issue. Having been successful in RedHat, where 
there was no problem running the Application's fonts in Wine, it is 
puzzling why this is not so in Ubuntu.

I have followed the support messages (both archived and current) to try 
to correct the problem. I have installed the universe/multiverse 
backports. I have installed the msttcorefonts package. The fonts work 
fine in all applications (browsers, OpenOffice, etc...) except this one. 
I have written and installed a new small VBapp to try to tweak the font 
set. Same result. The only fonts that appear are either too small or too 
large. This must be an issue some one else has manged to solve.

Currently running with Ubuntu 5.04 Hoary Hedgehog, Wine 0.0.20050725.

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
