Hmm, I did some more testing and it really seems that something gets
messed up at the point at which arial is merged with arial narrow. If
you launch gedit with LANG=C, and go to font selection, you will get the
following:

Selecting narrow will get you narrow typeface, but something is clearly
wrong there. On the other hand, in pl_PL locale:
http://belegdol.fedorapeople.org/gtkfontselpl.png
entries are duplicated and none of the displayed ones will select the
narrow typeface. I suspect something is wrong with the font as well, but
if per-font quirks are out of question, I suppose there is a proper way
to fix the problem.

Julian
