Despite the setTimeout, if the swf is small then a blink/webkit based browser cannot parse the fontface before shumway uses it. I attached an example swf, which renders the unicode squares instead of the embedded custom font in Chrome.
Font Loading API can be used for Chrome http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css-font-loading/

Ever confirmed: true
Summary: The fontface is not parsed before the label uses it on chrome → The fontface is not parsed before the label uses it on Chrome
This should at least be much better now. We're still not using the font loading API, but we at least wait for a while at the right moment, and haven't seen any intermittent issues around this in quite a while.
