I just realized that there was another use of this field as sync lock,
which I changed to use 'this' too. The lucidaFontName field is used in
one other location (not for syncing) and it surely could use some
cleanup, but I left it alone for now.


I need at least another review (not sure if Igor needs to say 'go'

Thanks, Roman
