In my experience it is not random. It occurs with side-loaded epubs, when a new chapter starts after waking up from sleep-mode.
Were the font files for Century Gothic named properly? If you copy the files from a Windows computer for example, you end up with GOTHIC.TTF, GOTHICB.TTF, GOTHICBI.TTF AND GOTHICI.TTF (regular, bold, bold-italic and italic). For use on the Kobo, you would need to rename the font files as follows:

Century Gothic-Regular.ttf
Century Gothic-Bold.ttf
Century Gothic-BoldItalic.ttf
Century Gothic-Italic.ttf

After I did this and copied the font files to the fonts directory on my Glo and power cycled it, the font styling showed up happily. As usual, YMMV.

As for the flyspeck font size, when I saw it was at the start of a new chapter but it did not require sleep or power off to trigger. It was all too common with 2.3.1 but I only saw it once with 2.3.2 and I haven't seen it since upgrading to 2.4.0 which is about 45 books ago.

Regards,
David
