pdf file with the font "Elli" that causes this coredump

Run "fontforge tales.pdf"; when "Pick font" dialog appears, choose font called "Elli". fontforge will crash at that point.

This is pretty much the same as bug 789187 that was reported against Fedora 16.
Comment 13 Paul Flo Williams 2013-01-21 10:18:44 EST
This happens on f17 too, but it doesn't happen with the latest upstream head. Unfortunately, it may take some time to identify an appropriate patch.
Comment 14 Paul Flo Williams 2013-02-07 16:25:51 EST
Examining the code that parses PDFs has revealed several array bounds faults that your test case triggers. I'm submitting builds for F18 and F17 at the moment.
