[ardour-users] Ardour-2 on multi-user systems

There is a .fonts.cache-1 file that is created in the home folder the  
first time a gtk2 app is run.  Since we copied this system from the  
Gimp.app program, could you test that program to see if it has the  
same problem?  I can't think of why this would be happening.  It's  
supposed to only happen once.
