Not really, you might want to file a bugzilla report against gtk-demo
since it should be a good demo.
The alias "monospace" is supposed to be guaranteed to exist on every
GTK 2 installation. If it doesn't get installed now it should be
fixed. If we fix gtk-demo to use the right alias then bugs should
become evident quickly.
(The other "guaranteed" font names are "sans" and "serif")
