Description of problem:
I was just testing a f12alpha spin and discovered that Droid Sans
seems to override the default Japanese desktop font.

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install google-droid-sans-fonts
2. login to gnome desktop 
3. run gucharmap

Actual results:
Most kanji glyphs are shown with Droid Sans.

Expected results:
Default Japanese IPA font to be used for Japanese characters.

Additional info:
Not sure why the Droid fonts were pulled into the spin.

This affects whole Japanese desktop and gdm, etc.
