Text font icon bug: shows wrong font
Hello,
I am now using Gimp 2.8.2 but I am having this bug in previous releases also.
Basically, in the Text window, the icon displays a funny font instead of the real font.
This is very annoying to see Hebrew or Hindi letter in the icon instead of the correct latin font.
Please see attached image, where the Aharoni font is displayed in the icon as an Hebrew Aleph.
Most of the fonts are wrongly displayed in the icon.

I could not find anybody else complaining about this bug so I have no idea what to do.
I only use fonts installed in the windows/fonts/ folder.

Thanks for your help.
Nicolas

This makes sense, but then why does the text I write in Gimp is not with Hebrew letters?
Basically, I simply do not understand why the text written in Gimp is in Latin if Aharoni is an Hebrew font (would I need an Hebrew keyboard or an Hebrew Windows OS)?.

It is much clearer now, thanks.
I also decided to remove all the non-latin fonts from my XP so the font lists are much shorter and limited to the fonts I am willing to use.
