NG window in MT-NewsWatcher mysteriously changes font - Mac Applications & Software

I have the Fonts preference for display of group and article windows in my copy of MT-NewsWatcher set to Geneva 12. Recently the font used in the comp.text.tex group window (the window showing the list of postings) has begun randomly resetting itself to what looks like Time 9 or 10. This occurs only in the group window, not in the individual article windows, and seems to occur only for this newsgroup among the 30 or so newsgroups I'm subscribed to. Seems to go away after a Restart, then return after a few days. ??????????????...

    Default NG window in MT-NewsWatcher mysteriously changes font

    I have the Fonts preference for display of group and article windows in
    my copy of MT-NewsWatcher set to Geneva 12.

    Recently the font used in the comp.text.tex group window (the window
    showing the list of postings) has begun randomly resetting itself to
    what looks like Time 9 or 10. This occurs only in the group window, not
    in the individual article windows, and seems to occur only for this
    newsgroup among the 30 or so newsgroups I'm subscribed to.

    Seems to go away after a Restart, then return after a few days.

    Someone in that group is using a character set beyond what can be
    displayed in Geneva, and MTNW is switching to a font that can handle the
    extra characters.

    The problem is apparently a Subject header containing characters not
    available in the current encoding (such as characters from non-Western
    scripts). I see this from time to time even in the Mac groups.

    MacSoup 2.5 X doesn't suffer from this (I know, it's off-line and
    MT-NewsWatcher is on-line, so you might not want to use MacSoup). But
    why ask in comp.text.tex?
