I have briefly experimented with the "Can..." problem in the following
variations (without any improvement):

  * latest jdk-12.0.2+10 from

  * button font "DejaVu Sans" instead of "Isabelle DejaVu Sans" (12px)

This also means that the problem is not introduced by the home-made
"Isabelle DejaVu Sans" font: that is important to have proper Isabelle
symboles uniformly in the GUI everywhere.
