Ugh, we're getting slower... what revision is the <r12112 data from?
I've just checked in a change (r12113) that might speed things up some.

I took a quick look at Scribus's font handling code. It seems very
simple as they rely on QT's font classes. Gtk does have equivalent
classes (deprecated GtkFontSelection and new from 3.2 GtkFontChooser)
but I don't know if using these would be any faster and we would
probably have to add a lot of functionality.
