 Unfortunately at least with version 0.71 there are severe problems using
gnumeric under russian locale - with any font of any style and size, the font
gnumeric uses for displaying russian is iso8859-1 encoding. It was tested with
gnome-print-0.31 already containing my recent fix to gnome-rfont.c (that
turned all gdk_font_load to gdk_fontset_load) - with that fix it would be
impossible to get font not suitable for displaying all locale's characters.

 This new behaviour makes gnumeric non-usable under single-byte non-latin1

 It would be nice if it was fixed
This is a gnome-print issue, versions > 0.29 are causing a spike in
gnumeric bug reports.  Unfortunately none of the mis-selected fonts
or crashes are replicatable for me.  Can you please have a look at
whats going on ?  Lauris has worked hard on the black magic in the
bowels of gnome-print that select x fonts.  This must be ironed out
before 1.0.
