Unfortunately I try for two or three hours to reproduce the bug without
It seems that I'm not be able to permanently reactivate this bloody Os 9 font.
I tried to clean the sys font cache and all these things you can think about
with no result.
What I can say for now is :
1) When the bug occured, all the three arial suitcases was activated at the
same time, including the Classic one.
2) The bug doesn't occur when the classic font is the only one to be activated
nor if I move it to one of the OsX font folder.
3) The only thing I noticed about this font is that Linotype FontExplorer lists
its components in a different order (that is : "Arial Bold Italic, Arial Bold,
Arial Italic, Arial" instead of "Arial, Arial Bold, Arial Bold Italic, Arial

The idea was to run a test with a pre "-webkit-text-fill",
"-webkit-text-stroke" build, but it makes no sense since I can't reproduce the
bug right now...
