That said, if you do build with --disable-xrender then the font issue
doesn't occur. So something else is broken with the xrender support :(
I propose that we disable xrender support by default for now while we
figure out what else is borked. This is slightly annoying since
especially in my current situation (slow X ssh connection to main
machine) running with -Dsun.java2d.xrender=True was the only way to make
running gui apps somewhat bearable. 

New test results published:

Test results: passed: 35; failed: 1; error: 2

Test results: passed: 1,475

Test results: passed: 3,751; failed: 53; error: 3

Still much more failures than I would like, but clearly somewhat better.
This time a lot of tests fail with the somewhat mysterious
IllegalArgumentException: button doesn't exist 12
