Summary0008721: changing the upper/lowercase-spelling of fonts confuses scribus
DescriptionIf a font changes its name in upper/lowercae-spelling only (p.e. piratesymbole ? Piratensymbole) and one loads an old Document, scribus ask to replace the font, but in the list of available fonts the new name does not show up. The old name still shows up, but is not associated with a font.

I attached a file that uses “bitstream Vera Sans Bold” which does not exist, because the fonts name is “Bitstream Vera Sans Bold” (a free font that's available at nearly every Linux-System).
It asks for the font to replace “bitstream Vera Sans Bold”, but in this fontlist “Bitstream Vera Sans Bold” does not show up – only “bitstream Vera Sans Bold”.
