Bug description:
  After upgrading from Vivid to Wily, pages using the "Ubuntu light" font actually renders with a weight heavier than the regular one in web pages.
  This happens with Chrome/Chromium and also the Ubuntu browser.

  After manually reinstalling the 0.80-0ubuntu6 version from Vivid (in
  place of 0.83-0ubuntu1), the issue is fixed.
