Thanks a lot!  I've committed a fix to this problem now, and
gnome-font-properties works for me.  I suppose I should have guessed
that people might actually use FcNameRegisterObjectTypes.

Now that gnome-terminal and gnome-font-properties work, I think it
should be safe to make a development release, hopefully tonight, after
looking at Behdad's patch.
