I'll try and investigate further in a few hours. It's been tracked as a regression in the fonts-android package, filed as #853921. The fix hasn't reached testing yet since it needs a unblock, which I didn't ask because I wanted to give it more testing. I've just successfully tested that a basic install in Japanese doesn't suffer from any regression when switching from the version in testing to the one in unstable, so I think it's safe to unblock/unblock-udeb it: unblock fonts-android/1:6.0.1r16-1.1 unblock-udeb fonts-android/1:6.0.1r16-1.1 (This took a while since I wanted to finish an automation proof of concept which lets me record an installation process and replay it later with a different image; but I'm finally there…) Adding the release team to the loop since I'm slightly reluctant to unblocking an upload of mine (for a package that isn't maintained by debian-boot). The (attached) source debdiff shouldn't be too scary though. KiBi.
