Yes-- this looks EXACTLY like the SBIT problem I have
been preaching about. The problem is that Freetype is
able to read the 1BPP SBIT data from the font, but
that our win32k doesnt know how to handle it.
Two bugs have been filed over this problem that are
related, but not exactly the same.
894 describes the problem with SBITs in TTF fonts,
while 309 deals with the problem when reading .FON
files. Both are related, as they both send the same
kind of data back to win32k, but are separate
the TTF fonts DO get enumerated (part of what DOESNT
happen with .FONS), but do not display correctly.
I am waiting on this bug to get fixed as well, so that
I can finish my Tahoma replacement.
