What do you mean by “worked”? I observed incomplete words in menus and popup 
buttons. Incorrect alignment of items in popup buttons - I suppose it’s due to 
incorrect lengthOfString results. Also I suppose I’ve found cause of a problem

changes must be applied to ART backend to adopt new caching algorithm.
