You would have to ask that question and screw things up....  :-)

okular also exhibits the same failure.  The dreaded acroread does not.  xpdf also does not exhibit a failure.

lsof shows xpdf using

/usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/s050000l.pfb   and /usr/share/fonts/default/Type1/n021003l.pfb

While acroread appears to be using only  /usr/share/fonts/dejavu/DejaVuSans.ttf

This is on F19.
