A red message ("missing font text") appears whenever I choose a size multiple of three in the layer labeling settings dialog (please see the attached image). Despite the message, everything works fine and if I do "Apply", the message disappears and the size is applied to the label. Choosing a multiple of three again, the message reappears.

On Windows I see it all the time, and does not go away regardless the font and the font size.

Hi Jürgen,

Now the opposite is happening, ie, it shows the message "Font is missing" with all sizes, except for the multiples of three.
