it is actually a different cache that is situated _before_ the
maFontInstanceList cache that was tweaked to fix those bugs, though i
have no idea what performance impact this has...

for a quick sanity check i've loaded the bugdoc from fdo#47636 and hit
pagedown until the end, which took (on a remote X display with dbgutil
build) 18 seconds without the change and 16 with, which probably means i
suck at using a stopwatch  :)
