Clearly the polling should

Oh yes - the fonts in the document can change at any time. Whenever the
fonts on the machine change - so that could be while working on the
document even, while using any tool.

Oh sure. But do we actually need the font list updated till the user
returns to the text tool? A poll on return to the text tool would
surely detect the change.
