I think you're right.  I don't have any packages containing the MS fonts.

I've just downloaded and installed the latest RPM available from
fontforge.sourceforge.net and I can still reproduce the problem.

The creator of bug #5057 reports that the problem occurs because he has a
package installed that already includes the MS fonts.  It's an unconfirmed
bug.  I don't have any package including these fonts, but my
"C:\Windows\Fonts" directory is still empty.  I think I may be experiencing
the same issue, but it's not because the fonts are found on the host.

What do you think?

Thank you for your help.
