actually, rather the normal, non-bold font. The new font weight 
adjustment apparently enforces that although you selected bold (unless 
an even bolder weight would exist in the font family).
Maybe the font selection should be tweaked to allow selecting a bold 
font even at the cost of not having a bolder variant available.
