In my case, I've got the TrueType font for "Arial Narrow" installed,
which displays fine within any application.

As a Separate family? Maybe that is an older font?

Yes and yes :-)

It's from a Windows XP installation and it reads "version 2.30", a bit
older than yours.

I only have access to
the onw off Windows 7, which seems to be included in the Arial family by
fontconfig. What I was hoping was for some sort of fontconfig
configuration magic which could cause Arial Narrow to be treated as a
separate family from Arial even with the newer font.

I can send you the involved *.ttf" files (there are 4 faces: "normal",
"bold", "bold italic" and "normal italic"), for you to make some tests.
That way we could discard the error comes from the font file or you are
facing another configuration problem :-?
