Yes, I can verify. Unfortunately, I'm a bit flabbergasted about why it fell over once again.

I suggest to use the workaround, ie. to run fc-cache.exe in C:/windows/fonts/ . I've verified that this works over here. Note that you'll need to remove Read-only and System attributes to C:/Windows/fonts/ to make this work, ie

cmd ->

  cd \windows
  attrib -r -s fonts
  fc-cache.exe fonts

there's also a separate bug with directory timestamps, which will be fixed in a forthcoming 2.8.1-2 release.

Unfortunately, I currently lack the time to seriously look at this; typically, debugging a problem like this takes about half a day of work.
