[BUG] BitFont importing doesn't work with font styles

I recently used BitFont to generate some BF to do the BF -> StrikeFont ->
TextStyle conversion.

There were two weird problems:

1) The font names were wrong.  When I called
  FontSet convertFontsNamed: 'MyFont'

I correctly got a new class FontSetMyFont, but the methods were called
 sizeMyFont2424, not sizeMyFont24

 (In both the method name and the "fontNamed:" literal.

I was able to fix these by hand.

2) I was able to call
  FontSetMyFont installAsTextStyle

and this worked, but I could not use any of the synthetic styles with this
font.  It turns out that StriekFont's derivativeFonts instance variable
was not getting initialized properly.

This can be fixed with this hack:

(TextConstants at: #MyFont) fontArray do: [:font | font reset]

This was working at some point in the past, but it is broken in a fully
updated 3.2 image.  I'd fix it, but I can't figure out how it broke. :)
