I believe Akira is right, I just checked in the source of 
cups-filters-1.0.16 that is mentioned in the original bug report and it 
seems that like in your example, trim is enabled in texttopdf.c:67, 
which is not a very good idea because -- depending on the fontconfig 
configuration -- the first font that satisfies the application's 
requirement might appear further down the list.

(I'm also not too positive about passing 0 as pointer to 'result'. Is 
that allowed for FcFontSort()?)
