[scribus] Font problem - broken glyph

Dear list member gurus,


I have a problem with one of my font files, it won't be loaded by Scribus neither nor 1.3.6svn-090827.

My problematic font is DIN Condensed, a commercial TrueType font I bought from MyFonts.com. Its foundry is ParaType, release year 1998. 


The error message of Scribus:

  Font E:\Work\Fonts\DinCondensedETT.ttf has broken  glyph 65535 (charcode 65535)


I have also found a similar problem by someone on this mailing list, with a different font, but referring the same glyph number (see http://lists.scribus.net/pipermail/scribus/2007-August/022902.html). I'm no font guru myself but the charcode suggests the problematic character is the very last one in the file, possibly not a character I'd normally use.


Is there a way to "force" Scribus to still load the font file? If not, what else can I do? Contacting the font vendor or foundry is possible the longest path I could take.


Thank you,
