Hi Rodney,

It might help if you could upload the font file(s) to the bugtracker, so that 
the developers could have a look at them. Please don't forget to mark the bug 
report as private, since we are not encouraging copyright infringment. A file 
uploaded to a "private" report will only be used for testing purposes, which 
is perfectly legal in most jurisdictions.

If you don't know which files are required for testing, it would help to know 
the format of the font (Type 1, TrueType, or OpenType).
