Really?  I remember that I wrote a code to search for
another font in such a case.

Even if the above function is not fully implemented, the
current font selection code should try to open the font and
do another check.  It seems that the mechanism is not
working well on Windows.  Please show me the info I asked in
the previous mail (the procedure starting from (setq
font-log nil)).
