LO does not bundle DejaVu (and should thus fall back to System 
substitutions, with unpredictable results, IIUC) when configured 
--without-fonts; that's why I asked.

One explanation why "tests passed" for them now under --without-fonts 
could be that that particular test would be excluded under 
--without-fonts, but I don't think that's what happens here.
