When you say "renamed the font", do you mean that you changed the  
*filename* or the internal *font name*? Those are two separate things.  
If you have multiple fonts with the same font name -- even though the  
filenames are different (which they must be, if they're all in the  
Fonts directory together) -- this is a recipe for confusion.

And if you're changing the internal font name, remember that fonts  
have multiple names (family, postscript, full, unique, preferred  
family, ....), possibly in multiple encodings and/or languages, and  
you need to be thorough about your changes if you want to avoid the  
risk of problems.
