This has eventually been traced back to a specific font package (providing Thai
fonts) having a slightly too-broad match in:


and thus catching /all/ explicit requests for "MS Sans Serif" and "Microsoft
Sans Serif" ...which is what WinForms specifically requests.

Thus the explicit "grabbing" of the pseudo generic font family name causes
everything to be sourced from that font, which has no coverage other than for
basic (non-accented Latin) and for Thai.
