My read of that bug report is that the reporter believed that setting
the normal font got them the bold one and vice versa.

If that's correct, and is the same thing affecting you, you could work
around it somewhat by setting the bold font, thereby getting the normal
one.

Not a perfect workaround, but maybe an improvement over the status quo.
