But the details in that report point to something entirely different not
related to architecture or font substitutions.  Reports are from
2009/2010: I'm not sure how many people actually ran 64bit versions of
Windows then.

You are changing the string contents (without counting a possibly
terminating \0 character) from 15 characters to 16 characters here.
15/16 is a suspicious threshold where different architectures and
compilers/libraries are involved.

Can you try some other font name expected to work and containing exactly
15 characters?
