I'll give this a shot... thanks.  

I'm still kind of wondering why such a crappy font gets chosen as the
default though.  Thin (cursive) script fonts being chosen as the
default should never happen...  FWIW, this is an automated install
where all packages are configured non-interactively.  Given that I
will need to change this on a whole bunch of machines, I'd really
prefer a solution that fixes it in the install process, rather than
having to manually edit files on a large number of machines...

If there's a better place to ask this kind of question, please let me
