Like the last one, this could use a regression test - even though
there's a JCK failure. FWIW a trivial one like this :-

import java.awt.*;
import java.io.File;

public class CreateFontSMTest {
     public static void main(String[] args) throws Exception {
         System.setSecurityManager(new SecurityManager());
         Font font = new Font("Dialog", Font.PLAIN, 12);

will work, but I also found we already have a test .. which I
guess never got run :-(, called FontPrivilege.java that does
something very similar. Its also in closed and I leave it
up to you whether to open that or add a new one but opening
it would be best.
