Dear Maintainer,

I’m trying to install a japanese software. While doing so, if I don’t use LANG=ja_JP.utf8, the kanji (japanese characters) are not displayed correctly (mojibake). If I use it, the kanji are displayed correctly, but the roman letter (a-z etc.) are not displayed correctly, instead empty squares are displayed.

The problem can be reproduced simply with running “env LANG=ja_JP.utf8 WINEPREFIX=~/wine_japanese winecfg”. When doing that, the winecfg window roman letters are also not displayed correctly.

On another computer using Ubuntu 12.04, with wine 1.5, this problem doesn’t exist. I tryed removing mscorefont from this other computer to see if the problem would appear and it did not, winecfg window (and the software) fonts are displayed correctly. I have no idea if this was fixed in wine 1.5 branch at some point. Another point, my system LANG is fr_FR.utf8 while this other computer’s is ja_JP.utf8.
