This sounds like what is happening, yes, and explains why the 2-bold
file looked bold and antialiased --- it is the real bold font.  It looks
like my patch is correct, then, but that it's revealing a problem
elsewhere, i.e., in the code that decides when "synthetic" bold is
required?  I'll dig into that if I have time, but if someone who knows
that part of the code better beats me to it, so much the better.
