proposed patch

Using the current ooo packages for Feisty, open Writer, type a few characters, and then go to the Format --> Character menu. In the Font tab under Typeface, the options listed are:

Negreta cursiva

The system in question is en_US. I've had Feisty on this computer for some time and do not recall seeing this before (not certain I used the Font menu though).

I cant reproduce this on 3.4.3 however lp#851268 claims it still to be existing in that version for mscorefonts and both at lp#105900 and bnc#379991 are still open.

The discussion at bnc#379991 ends with 'forwarding to dev-ml' but the bug is still open.

@Caolan: Can you have a look at the patch if it is useful or obsolete?
