This may be due to where OS X puts the fonts and what font path GTK
is set up to use in Wing.  You may be able to edit the Fonts directory
list in bin/gtk-bin/etc/fonts/fonts.conf in your Wing install (inside
the .app bundle under Contents/MacOS).

I think GTK may crash on some OS X fonts, or at least used to, so you may
also want to just copy the font into one of the locations Wing's GTK is
already looking.

Hope this helps.
