Have you tried the Avenir font? Have you tried Italics with the Avenir Font? Have you tried it with a sideloaded ePub? What version of firmware are you using?
As far as I know, the Avenir Italics issue is universal. However if you are a person who never changes the font from the default, you're not likely to see the issue. A quick poll at work of 11 ereader owners showed 2 of them even knew/cared they could change fonts. Well, 3 if I include myself. And a total of myself who has actually added fonts to his ereader. On a brighter note, 4 of the 5 Kobo owners have sideloaded content or obtained ebooks from the public library while two of the Kindle owners are waiting for the libraries to finally get Kindle compatible content -- they see a "compatible for US libraries only" message.

As a group, they would make lousy testers -- the envelope is never touched much less pushed.
