Comment 4 Alexander Todorov 2008-10-29 05:12:21 EDT
any idea why the messages in comment #0 appear? Is it caused by fontconfig or something else?
Comment 5 Behdad Esfahbod 2008-10-30 18:56:08 EDT
I don't know.  Sounds like a powerpc-specific issue.  We need such a broken file and access to powerpc to debug.
Comment 12 Akira TAGOH 2013-02-12 04:43:15 EST
Is this issue still reproducible? if so, any further information to debug it?
