  Okay, I've not followed the steps from top to bottom, but I do have
a copy of Garton that shows the same behavior.  First some questions:

- Where did you get the Garton font?
  (it doesn't appear to be in the msttcorefonts)

- Are we using the same font?  (below is the md5sum from my TTF file)
  15919e2750f38a3988147cd6ad57d22a  GARTON__.TTF

- Which other fonts do you see this problem with?

  Now an observation about gfontsel: if you select the second tab 
(font information) you should see it say that it's not actually 
using the font you requested.

  I haven't figured out why this is yet but... it does tell you which
font is actually being displayed.
