Customize color, but font changes too

Permalink Browser Info Environment
First let me say how much I love this theme, it is very nice!

I am having an issue though, not sure if it's just me or what, but here's the deal.

When I go to customize the theme to change a color, any color (footer color, header background, etc), it also changes the font from the nice arial to an awful times-roman looking font.

I can reset the customization and the font goes back to normal. I've tried this several times, making sure not to touch the font setting, only changing a color, and the font always goes bad.

Any suggestions?

Edit: just tried customizing the font and no matter what I select it goes to the "bad" looking font.

Edit #2: if I change the color, then change the font and size to arial, then it saves those changes and is OK.

I would think you should be able to change a color and have it leave the font alone, or maybe it's me?

This is a problem with using the typography css (as far as I know). Whenever you change any single parameter in the customize menu the fonts all revert to Times. I personally never use the typography.css for this reason.
The alternate is to open the actual typography.css in a text editor and change the value manually. This will not affect the fonts. I can do it for you if you send me your ftp information and the colors you want.

If that's how it is, it's fine, I know now that I need to change the color first, then change the font back to what I want.

Yeah. The base fonts for this theme are:

body font color: #444444
body font face: normal normal 12px/22px "Helvetica Neue"

h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6

font: normal normal 25px/1em Georgia, "Times New Roman", Times, serif
color: #444444

The header font size is set separately after this declaration so the shouldn't change size no matter what you set in the controls.
