I also suffer from this bug. Ubuntu lucid beta

My situation is that I have two preferred fonts for 'sans-serif' defined
in my ~/.fonts.conf,  the first is DejaVu for Latin characters, and the
second is FangZheng for CJK.

Now if I remove the first font in my ~/.fonts.conf, leaving only the
second, flash will display Chinese characters correctly, but latin
letters in other normal applications will become ugly.

For Aron's patch, it works for me, but it'll affect other applications.
The meaning of the patch if to append 'wenquanyi' font for all non-
wenquanyi font, then my preferred CJK font defined in ~/.fonts.conf
won't be chosen.

For example, I use Comic Sans for titlebar, and if CJK character appears
there, according to ~/.fonts.conf, FangZheng will be chosen, But
applying Aron's patch will disable it, since 'wenquanyi' instead of
'sans-serif' will be appended

Of course I can change the font in sanserif.conf to be my favorite one,
but I sugguest only the last string should be replaced -- that's the way
it's designed to be.

On the other hand, it's bad for us 'have to' modify a global conf file,
maybe we can give 50-user a higher privilege?
