This link you have found about similar font problem is mine:
I should have written to this list to let you know how it ended. I discovered
that this is a wine bug:
I am pretty sure that this is a real bug, because I checked wine-git tree with
bisect and there was an obvious bug in a patch from qingdoa daoo. It was also
reported by someone else.
I thought this is a minor thing, that nobody cares, but if it is not, please
add your comment to this bug, so we can persuade that this is more important
or make the status change to "confirmed", because nothing happens.
The bug was opened on 2006-08-25 02:25
