This bug is also in Radar as <rdar://4578554>

Bold text at Google and some other sites is extra-bold on one of my two

This occurred earlier just after we added support for synthetic bold, but broke

The font that's causing this problem is attached. If I disable this font in
Font Book and relaunch Safari, the problem goes away.

Since the symptoms are exactly the same as before, it seems like recent changes
in the font code broke or removed the earlier fix.
