Gnumeric 0.71 contained attempt to improve font loading for multibyte locales

All that did was s/gdk_font_load/gdk_fontset_load/
When it was made? Gnumeric should use the font gnome print returns to it, so
manual gdk_font_load or gdk_fontset_load is not anywhere.
Could you please tell in which file that s/gdk_font_load/gdk_fontset_load/
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
I know that version of gnumeric before 0.71 and gnome-print-0.29 definitely
had problems with fonts - encoding of the font was random, different for
different font size and style.
Gnumeric before 0.71 and GP 0.30 and 0.31 DIDN'T have such problems.
Gnumeric after 0.71 and GP 0.30 and 0.31 have such problems.
Where one can see the bugrepors about font problems? Are they available in
bugzilla or do you receive them in private mail?
