Font Mapper does not show all fonts installed in Windows 7

Recently I was trying to change fonts in OS and also in Winamp. Changing them in playlist is not a problem. But when trying to adjust the songticker, apparently there is a bug

In both

Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font > Font Mapper > Configure skin font mapping > Map font

Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font > Font Mapper > Configure skin font mapping > Into

those lists of fonts do not show me for example the Tahoma font; while at the same time that Tahoma it is visible everywhere else in the system and can be even applied to Playlist of Winamp itself. Also for example font Sagoe UI is missing, but it derivatives Sagoe Print and Sagoe Script are present



But that's not all. Also the

Options > Preferences > Skins > Modern Skins > Font Rendering > Font > Font Mapper > TrueType replacement for Winamp Charset Bitmap Fonts > Replace with

doesn't show me those missing fonts. And on top of that, every font that I select in there, the next time I open the this window, is changed to the font above the font that is actually used. So if I can choose in the "Replace with" between fonts named
Font A
Font BB
Font CCC
and I choose Font BB, then that Font BB will be applied to Charset. But when I close Preferences, or for example switch from "Modern Skins" window to "Classic Skins", and then go back to "Font Rendering" tab, then the font in "Replace with" is changed to Font A [while in reality Font BB is still displaying values in the Charset]

And also some fonts can be chosen in this "Replace with", but are not displayed; for example Courier New works, but Courier Bold after being picked reverts to showing Arial instead of Courier Bold



I'm running on Windows 7 x64 with Winamp 5.666 build 3516

And there are more bugs / problems with the Mapper


Some fonts after choosing them overlap fields in the File Info Component window. For example when using PragmataPro the beginning of "Title" tag is shown before the end of the word "Title", thus making it unreadable. Some fonts / fields make this overlap in a lesser way and some in a much serious [making more mess on the screen]; some fonts are completely usless

Also: why does after choosing a font, that same font is shown differently in File Info Component window and in Tickebar form? For example PT Sans Caption look very clear when viewed in Ticketbar, but is largely unreadable when shown in the File Info Component window? One option [Font Mapper] controls both of this fields, but gives different results

I've tried tempering with
Windows Settings > Scalling
[because use 125% or 150 %], but changing this didn't help. In File Info Component that font looked like [way to] bold and in Ticketbar it looked like a regular [with thin lines]
