JavaFX printing on OS X is horribly broken

The JavaFX bug <> refers to the JDK bug <> which appears to be back ported to 8u60 via <>
I grabbed 8u60 b19 from jdk-8u60-ea-bin-b19-macosx-x86_64-09_jun_2015.dmg <> The download page wasn’t updated yet so I guessed the URL, which appears to give me a real b19:
$ java -version
java version "1.8.0_60-ea"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.8.0_60-ea-b19)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 25.60-b19, mixed mode)

Based on the changeset graph at <> it looked like b19 should include changeset <>

But printing still doesn’t work. :-(  The letters and glyph advances are still completely garbled.

Have I made a mistake in my expectations for 8u60 b19 to contain a fix?
