Yes, this is true, it is not completely satisfactory.  That said however,
Rev as the examples show, is doing something very odd.  Its interesting that
Richmond and I are installing the fonts in different ways, but with the same
results.  I am not copying into /etc/fonts, but am installing in the case of
one-offs by using either the KDE or Gnome font managers.  Or in the case of
doing a lot at once, I mostly use the antique but convenient spadmin. 
Whichever, all the other apps but Rev find the installed fonts with no
problem.
