Description 2008-04-01 08:25:20 UTC
On Solaris psprint gives many text fonts the "I am a SYMBOL-font" flag, which causes problems like
- codepoints in such fonts do not have specified semantics, so glyph fallback cannot work
- the font selection listbox preview uses a different preview mode for symbol fonts, i.e. it shows small 

On SunOs 5.11 especially the Lucida*Lat2 and Lucida*Lat5 font families are affected. The fonts.dir file in 
the directories advertises them as iso8859-2 and iso8859-5, so they should be recognized as text fonts.
