  English fonts appear poorly on Hebrew Ubuntu upgrade

Status in update-manager package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  This morning I did an upgrade to 15.04 on a Hebrew computer. Everything worked well except that the font is messed up. Specifically it fails to get the width of the letter correct so "l" and "i" have large spaces after them, and "m" overlaps the next letter.
  I am referring to the dialog which stays on the screen during the upgrade. On the "white" portions of the dialog, the font is OK. The problem occurs when you open the console, "details" button. The main dialog box gives Hebrew translations to most items and the Hebrew is OK. There is one line of English telling what it is currently doing, which is also OK. Just the console which gives a history of what has been done, that has a screwed up font.
  My guess is that it is taking the width of the Hebrew letters, instead of the English characters, which turns it into a mess.

  This is clearly not a major problem, but it is a pity not to correct
