Well, remove some fonts:)
Really all the systems I know behave the same - with the prohibitive
prices foundries charge for well-designed fonts (as opposed to the free
ones that are mostly logo/title junk) the population that needs to work
with thousands of fonts simultaneously must be really tiny.

I'm not saying that's good, just that "the user will have a small number
of fonts" is a common enough software assumption.
