Default X5 SP1 Bug when applying a symbol font like wingdings

I'm not sure if this is a bug exactly but here's the scenario.

- take an active text shape, select a range of characters, change the font of the range to a symbol font like Wingdings

Code Sample:
shape.Text.Frames.First.Range.Characters.Item(1).Font = "Wingdings"
This simple code line ran perfectly under ever version of X4 and X5 (pre-SP1) now it behaves as if I have entered a fontname that doesn't exist. Additionally the Application.FontList appears to be returning a smaller list of Fonts than the CorelDraw UI. I outputted the list and my symbol fonts (i.e. wingdings, wingdings2, wingdings3, webdings) are not on that list.

Any thoughts?

Default Wingdings

I can confirm this is a bug, and it has been reported to Corel. Sorry I don't have a workaround at this time.

Thank you Shelby, glad to know I'm not crazy.

As a general question: Is there a preferred method for setting text fonts? Also is there a relational reason for why the Application.FontList method returns such an incomplete list?
