You say that it shows small sample of each font. On my side for years
it shows just 3 major options Misc, few fonts commonly used on X
before 20 years, then there is Courier option for various sizes, bold
and slant and mix, and there is fontset. More than that never appears

S-mouse-1 opens up same dialog.

Do you mean that there are more fonts on your side displayed under
those options?
