Subject: Opentype font file causes Windows to restart.

| Problem
| -------
|
| The attached OpenType font file will cause Windows to restart
| immediately when the file is opened by the default viewer (fontview).
| I doubt anyone would suspect a "harmless" little font file of being
| able to cause such a thing to happen!
|
| Software affected
| -----------------
| It has been tested on both Windows 2000 and Windows XP with exactly
| the same result -- an immediate restart. Other versions of Windows
| are untested.
|
| Fix
| ---
| No fix known.
