a user of mine reported a crasher bug when rendering a specific font.
we tried hunting down the font, and it seems that
- the font is buggy (e.g. containing self-intersecting glyphs)
- FTGL crashes
the buggy font is Beans
doing a quick check with FTGLDemo (2.1.3~rc5) shows that FTGL is indeed crashing:
- (rendering seems to work though there are a lot of artefacts)
- type Left
./FTGLMFontDemo /path/to/Beams.ttf immediately crashes.
the problem persists with the current SVN version of FTGL.
the original bug-report (containing an assertion error and the output of the fontforge validation of the Font=, can be found here
