I find this very hard to believe. The net effect of the uninstaller only is that 2 configuration files are removed.

Again, very hard to believe. Since the configuration files are not read anymore, it is pretty much impossible that they are evaluated.
Are you sure that this is caused by font hack, not by your own modifications?

I don't know what went wrong in your case, but I suggest to uninstall, then reinstall v1.3.0.

There is no update needed. The installer and uninstaller continue to work unchanged.

@jglerner: can you install the freetype lib and see if this solves (some of) your problems? As far as I see, everything *except* for the serif font substitution should be working... (in case of oddities, manually refreshing the font cache, then restarting, is always a good idea to try as the first troubleshooting attempt)
