Hi Robert,

What happened was that for whatever reason my version of the ‘patch’ command did not like your patch. I tried various things to get ‘patch’ to accept it but without success. Note that this had nothing to do with the modular restructuring of the source tree as the path is easily unshuffled. Consequently I reproduced it manually, copy-pasting the revisions from Firefox into Netbeans on Mac OS 10.9. This is apparently font-preserving but not visible in a webrev and the jcheck tool did not catch it either.

In any case, the problems appear to be fixed now.
