FYI - I encountered a similar problem with custom/user fonts being
embedded multiple times in PDFs.  (Or was it with FT fonts?  Or was
it both?  I don't recall at the moment.)  However, I had to end up
filtering out duplicates myself...

Would this alternate fix be limited to just win32/LOGFONTS, or would
it filter out any/all duplicates (Including user fonts)?

I don't particularly _need_ it, since my code is in place, and I have
to do some caching anyways to prevent dangling pointers, but if this
affected my case, I'd probably review/revise my code accordingly.
