           Summary: FontDialog shows invalid Fonts
    Classification: Mono
           Product: Mono: Class Libraries

          Platform: x86

When calling FontDialog with FixedPitchOnly=true there appear
Symbol Fonts which are not suitable like
"Standard Symbols","Dingbats" and "Cursor"

In Windows these Fonts can be sorted out by applying the LogFont Structure this

  lf = new LogFont();
  font_is_symbol = (lf.lfCharSet=2);

But this doesn't work on Linux

Furthermore Fonts like
"Goha-Tibeb Zemen","Estrangelo Edessa"
are displayed as rectanles and should also be sorted out

Reproducible: Always
