Just to confirm the carbon font dialog seems completely broken under the 
current SVN with OSX fully patched. 
(https://bugs.freepascal.org/view.php?id=35214) Given Carbon is on its 
way out, replacing the native control with a (more or less equivalent) 
substitute might be the most sensible work-around. I am not sure top 
what extent the native dialog ever worked anyway, as it is not intended 
to be used as a modal dialog.
