winecfg or winefile look ok here, even if I start with 1.8-6, create a
prefix and update to 1.8-7 or 1.8.1-1. I also don't get the fixme
warnings (although enabled in WINEDEBUG).
But other Windows applications indeed also miss the text in their
windows. Creating the link doesn't help though for that.
I have fonts-liberation installed (but not ttf-mscorefonts-installer).
Unfortunately I can't easily test if this is the reason that I don't see
exactly the same problem. Do you have fonts-liberation installed?
btw 1, packages.d.o  strangely still shows the old filepaths (up to
1.8-6), e.g. /usr/share/wine/wine/fonts/vgasyst.fon. But I don't see how
this could be related.
btw 2, wine-development has fontdir = /usr/share/wine/wine/fonts.
