[Wine] squares instead of font characters since wine-0.9.13

Hi Piotr,

I had font-problems since version 0.9.9 (the system-font showed up in ugly "Courier"-style only). 
After months of googling and finding no help at all on the wine-lists, faqs, docs, etc., late last 
night I finally solved it by copying all files from an original XP's




(TTF didn't previously exist).
(Finally found it here: http://mandrivausers.org/lofiversion/index.php/t30766.html)

I can't understand why the wine developers don't care at all about fonts. Wine looks so damn wracked 
and broken without proper fonts that this would even be an argument for not recommending the use of 
any commercial "Xover-office" solution... Aren't there people trying to fill their stomach with that 
commercial branch of wine?
