I've checked in a change to make it return FALSE in that case, but to do
it as

	if (!user_font_test(font_name)) {
		return FALSE;
	new_font_name = font_name;
	return TRUE;

so that the "user_font_test()" test is like the "if (font_name == NULL)"
test, and the "normal" path out of "font_fetch()" is the success path,
to make it a bit clearer what the failure paths are.
