Because using the same fonts here doesn't reproduce the problem.
Which means that the font data is not the culprit, there's some other
factor at work here.

Thanks, I will try using one of these, maybe it will help me reproduce
the problem.

Debugging display problems without seeing the display is not
practical.

The former, of course.  This happens in complicated code I know very
little about, and no one else on board knows more.  Stepping through
the code with a debugger, comparing the "fast" path with the "slow"
path is the only way to understand what is going on there.

If they can debug the problem and explain why the slowdown is so
massive, yes.  Otherwise, we are back to square one.
