Font bug on LO 4.1 when opening documents created with LO 4.0

Hello,

LO 4.1 on mac treats fonts differently than LO 4.0. Especially when dealing with fonts that have special "weights". This leads to bad results when opening in LO 4.1 documents created with LO 4.0 that uses such fonts.

For example the Deja Vu font also exists as Deja Vu Light. In LO 4.0, it is displayed as a different font than Deja Vu. In LO 4.1, it is considered as part of the Deja Vu package.

The images below illustrate this bug:

Should I file a bug report?
