Updating skin version breaks TrueType font

I've just recently started working on my skin again. One thing I had neglected for a long time was updating the skin version as I updated Winamp versions (I had 0.8 in there). Today I updated to 5.54 and also updated my skin version to 1.34, and one of the two TrueType fonts in my skin now reverts to Arial; the other font works fine. Changing the skin version to 1.2 or less fixes it. Anything change in recent versions as to how TTF fonts are handled?

Some additional info - in the Preferences window, under Modern Skins/Font Rendering, the problem font also doesn't appear in the list of default/fallback fonts, or in the TrueType Replacement list.

Fixed! This was a font I created a long time ago. Somewhere internally, the name got hosed up, and Winamp couldn't find it. I mentioned above that it wasn't in the lists in the Preferences. It was, but under the hosed-up name. I copied all the characters into a new TTF file and it's working now.
