The thing is that even if that might enable us to find out when the 
font configuration has changed, it would not solve the problem that 
fontconfig, when asked to list the available fonts would still list 
the old font set.

I do not think it makes any sense to rewrite fontconfig, so if that 
turns out to be the culprit we will have to get it fixed.
