Summary0015982: Functions: Memory leak in font_delete and font_add
DescriptionDeleting a font using font_delete() doesn't clear all resources used if the font is added using font_add().
Adding and deleting fonts repeatedly will skyrocket memory usage without limit.
I'm pretty sure this is a memory leak.
Unknown if this bug carries over to other OSs. More testing needs to be done.
