You may find the '-iname' option quite convinient...

Well, it certainly doesn't exist on my system. My guess is that PAF is
actually looking for another font which does not exist on your system.
One of two things may be happening:
The mechanism for looking up a font tries to choose a "similar" one
and returns what you see.
PAF realizes this font doesn't exist and on purpose chooses Captain
I suggest: Find out which font exactly is being used under Windows. Make
sure this font is available under wine. See if that helps.
