Comment 29 for bug 475889

I'm unable to reproduce this issue in Karmic, Lucid and Maverick, even with dutch locales (if I recognized dutch well).
The only difference is that I installed fonts for a specific user instead of system wide install:
- Create ~/.fonts/arialnarrow/
- Copy ARIALN*.TTF in ~/.fonts/arialnarrow/
- run fc-cache -fv

gnome-specimen lists 2 different fonts (which are the right ones) and the right fonts are used in openoffice. I suspect some kind of substitution occurs on you system.

What's the output of
$ fc-list | grep -i arial
$ fc-match "arial narrow"

Thanks in advance.
