A user found a bug here. When changing a font in advanced data defined labeling (1.8 and master today), font selected is not written to table, so not taken into account.

Thanks. Confirmed here on Mac. Working on a fix, probably done today.
Concerning the 'change label properties' tool and its dialog, I decided that with the limited time I had to update the labeling GUI, that I should focus on the main 'layer level' dialog. I therefore only updated the underlying code to the 'change label properties' dialog to work with expression-based data definitions.
However, the 'change label properties' dialog will hopefully see quite an update for QGIS 2.1. One of the first steps towards label styles (like gradient or symbol styles in Style Manager) is to have a base dialog built off of components that works for editing layer-level, change label tool, and styles properties. The redesign of the layer-level dialog was intended to be a start in that direction.
The new label styles will be the basis for a rule-based labeling setup.
In other words, the current 'change label properties' dialog will not be updated any further for 2.0 release (excepting for bugs like this one). To do so would be wasted time coding something that will be replaced soon.
