Hmm... this actually seems like the best solution, you're right! I 
cannot dev tonight, but it seems that revert the commit I made and 
document this would be good. I'll do it tomorrow in the evening if noone 
has time to do it.

I don't know kpse very well, but it seems to be the // in ;OSFONTDIR// 
that makes the magic appear, I think it's the normal behaviour.

Thank you,
