there was neither an error in 1.9.5-1 nor in 1.9.5-3.

1.) How to reproduce this error:

So here was what I tested - my test settings:
I maintain the mailer 'The Bat!' for wines AppDB

To reproduce the error try this (I started with 'rm -fR ~/.wine'):
1.) Download The Bat! from RitLabs webpage:
2.) Install it via the installer. Use the default settings.
3.) Start the application 'thebat64.exe'.
4.) Create a dummy mail account.
5.) Choose in the main toolbar the item 'Create a new message'.

The window "Edit mail message" isn't under control of the window
manager (in my case this is KDE) and has this strange signs for
minimize, windowed, close. Only windows not under this control are
affected by this mistake.

2.) Answers and results to your suggestions:

Yes. It have version 1.07.4-1

First I copied all fonts like yours description. This was working the
glitch disappears. To catch the right suspect I copied than the font
files one by one and discovered that 'marlett.ttf' was the one which
did the trick.

This wasn't necessary.

Thanks to you Jens!

I would like to have the changes in Debians wine code under source
control for instance of git. I like the bisection mechanism to find the
patch with is to blame (<https://git-scm.com/docs/git-bisect>).
