I use CMU unicode fonts since version 0.6.0, under Windows XP (SP2), using the OpenType format. All fonts work perfectly except these two:

CMU Typewriter Text Variable Width (cmunvt.otf) and CMU Typewriter Text Variable Width Italic (cmunvi.otf).

Windows inform they are not valid font files. The error still occurs in version 0.6.3.

    It is known issue. Look at http://cm-unicode.sourceforge.net/warnings.html (The fonts CMUTypewriterVariable and CMUTypewriterVariable-Italic cannot be installed under Windows due to long family name).
