I work on the converted (old) rockbox proportional font (I'll post it
tomorrow when some more corrections are finished, it works well by

I saved the font to system.fnt (after using convbdf) and it loaded.
But all space characters were displayed wrong: they all showed the
same two pixels (but the bitmap of the space character is "empty").

Then I saw that with your clR6x8 font (saved to system.fnt) some other
pixels are displayed instead of the space character.

This is obviously a bug. Can you please verify this behaviour? (Did
anybody use the convbdf tool to crate a system.fnt?)

Another bug: The system.fnt doesn't load automatically after startup
(resume is on). I must go to the menu, then it is updated.

Bye, Uwe.
