Hmmm, actually, Devanagari is a script name, more than a
language. Several Indic languages are using the Devanagari
script. Among those we support, the three that use Devanagari are
Hindi, Marathi and Nepali.

The marathi-desktop has ttf-devanagari-fonts in "Key:" while the two
others only have it in Packages-list. So, depending on the support
used for the babelbox install, if ttf-devanagari-fonts was missing or
not installable, that may explain the result.

Still, I'm not completely sure about this to be the right reason for
the seen problem.
