Description Jungshik Shin 2004-01-05 09:41:06 UTC
I'm reporting the bug originally reported at 

<quote from the RH bugzilla>
Description of problem:  When font files are renamed, but the exact
same list of fonts exists in the directory as did before, running
fc-cache in the directory where the renaming occurred doesn't cause
the old names for the fonts to be removed from fonts.cache-1.  (The
conditions for causing the bug may be more general than that, but the
entries are removed if one of the fonts is then deleted and fc-cache
is rerun.)

This also leads Mozilla to die (see

I can't reproduce this with current CVS; I'm assuming it's been fixed.  Please
reopen with another test case if it's still broken.
