I have two problems showing up on the new text toolbar.
On Ubuntu 8.10 I get no combo boxes showing up at all for the font family and size.
On Ubuntu 9.10 I am getting all fonts warned as not being on the system and that they are ignored to not crash pango.
I'm poking around at the 8.10 one to see if there's anything I can pinpoint as the cause. For the 9.10 problem, I was thinking there is a better chance that others might be seeing the same issue.
