According to the details about this feature, if the system font is "not
suitable" the feature is disabled and a different font selected for the UI. see
We need to see if this test is correct. So what's the
desktop->preferences->application font ?

Different UI Korea Font and Can't "Use system font user interface" option
This problem happens again in openoffice.org-core-1.9.117-1.1.0.fc4.
Selecting Non Korean font( like Tahoma,Bitstream Vera Sans) in Application font
on gnome-font-properties, This problem ( attachment 116832 [details] )happens. But
Selecting Korean font( like Gulim, Sans) this problem doesn't happen.
Ah yes, apparently OOo does tests to see if your application font is suitable
for the UI which is korean, it doesn't know about the new fontconfig stuff so it
would reject non-korean coverage fonts. It might be possible to find this test
and experimentally disable it for the UI and see if the fontconfig glyph
substitution does the right thing.
have a simple patch I'll try out in 1.9.118-1 rawhide
Can you see (when it's available on your local mirror) if 1.9.118-1 solves this

new "Use system font" bug in openoffice.org
Sorry about my slow answer.
This bug 150643, comment 4 was fixed in 1.9.121-4, but new version (1.9.122-1)
comes with new "Use system font" bug.
UI font has only square glyph.
Executed in gnome-terminal
--- Couldn't get FontFamily for 'Some English Font'
Yeah, I can actually reproduce that problem :-), so I've been able to fix it I
think. In 1.9.123 I expect this to work again.
