Bug Description

Since I updated to Ubuntu 12.10 I have a problem in Netbeans

Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/65-culmus.conf", line 12: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not works as expected
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/65-culmus.conf", line 34: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not works as expected
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/65-culmus.conf", line 44: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not works as expected
Fontconfig warning: "/etc/fonts/conf.d/65-culmus.conf", line 55: Having multiple values in <test> isn't supported and may not works as expected

I strongly suspect the problem is not with Netbeans but the way the fonts are defined. The errors make sense if I look at the file:
        <match target="pattern" >
                <test name="family" >
                        <string>Aharoni</string>
                        <string>Guttman Aharoni</string>
                        <string>Guttman-Aharoni</string>
                </test>
                <edit mode="append" binding="same" name="family" >
                        <string>Aharoni CLM</string>
                </edit>
        </match>
i.e. there are indeed multiple values inside the test tag. I don't know how or why they are there or what would happen if I arbitrarily removed some of the fonts. What I do know is that Netbeans never used to complain with a log list of error messages. They are all on the same culmus.conf, so maybe if I could change that to something else which was reasonable, that would also solve the problem.

Thanks, Ilan
