Subject: Re[2]: Loadable fonts
From: Alex Gitelman (

Well, bdf itself is 31K. There might be some overhead.
However error occurs at the very beginning of loading.
In any case I thing that the final solution should load
precompiled fonts.
I now suspect that some local memory allocation may be culprit.
I will probably review that.
