[about breakage in the selection of fonts for plots on Windows]
A long time ago we decided to use a native Windows function
(ChooseFont) for font selection in our Windows builds, as opposed
to the GTK function that we use on Linux and Mac. It seems that
our ChooseFont usage has been subject to bitrot. I think the best
solution is to go over to GTK font selection on Windows.
Well actually that didn't turn out too well, for various reasons.
But in the latest snapshots I've made a determined effort to get
Windows' ChooseFont() working correctly. Please test so we can
ensure this is right in the next release.
