Warning "Font has limited support for character ranges" on every new window since yesterday

I have been using Cygwin for over a year now, and am very happy with it.
I have ran the cygwin setup yesterday to update the packages I had and
to add dos2unix, which succeeded successfully.

Today however, every time I start a new cygwin terminal (with Alt+F2
of using the desktop shortcut), I am met with this warning:

Font has limited support for character ranges

Here is a screenshot of that warning: http://i.imgur.com/Go5vz7m.png

I am indeed using a font called gohufont-14 which only comes in size
of 14pt. I have been using this font for over a year and I am well
aware of its limitations. However, this new warning every time I open
a window is a real blocker here as I am used to starting around 500
new windows a day...

Is there a way to remove this warning while keeping this font?
I am ready to downgrade anything (provided you tell me what) I need to
or to change any configuration option if that helps, I am even ready
to reinstall cygwin from scratch.

In case it helps, here is the log from the installation: http://sprunge.us/BIbV
You can see that it "Failed to open cygfile:///usr/bin/cygwin1.dll for
writing." but I don't know if this is relevant to my problem.

Thank you a lot in advance for your answers.
