Is it a bug?

you do), then we should find a solution to the bug itself (rather than
provide an easy way to make everything worse).

We have a problem.

>(it seems that currently, Pd-gui signals the font metrics back to
Pd-core, which will (among other things) trigger Pd-core to load it's
libraries. it might be worth entangling *that*)

Yes, I cant override or change the variable “font_metrics” set @ line 127 from “pd-gui.tcl” using a gui-plugin.

Is it posible?

I still think that shipping dejavu and hard-code Pd-extended metrics is full of goodness.
