Yes, I plan on more debugging later when I get home, because ultimately this *will* be fixed - it's only a matter of time and how.  Since my font (Helvetica Neue Condensed family) was purchase from Adobe (and not cheaply, either!), I'm quite certain it's not a bad font.  As mentioned, other .sla files using the same font are exporting fine.
