This is not really a fix, this is an ugly hack to workaround fontconfig default
behaviour. It only works in very specific instances, when specific fonts are
installed, and will probably have nasty side-effects somewhere.

The correct fix is either to get upstream to drop latin glyphs from VLGothic,
or enhance fontconfig so you can blacklist parts of a font (as people have been
requesting for years).

I'm sure Behdad would appreciate help in doing 2. though
