 This indicates a bug with fontforge, ...

On my dvips output, the 3 glyphs are missing, but also half of the document has 
the wrong glyphs. I'll just describe it as rubbish :-).

It is most likely a bug with fontforge; but besides my general lack of 
experience with it (this is perhaps the first time I used it!), it also takes 
about 26 minutses per face on my hardware - so It took almost an hour for 
converting both Regular and Bold; it is not exactly practical to "try" anything 
without a clear idea of what/which part to change. OTOH, running ttf2tfm takes 
only seconds so trying and things not working out correctly isn't a problem.

I have the working ttm's from ttf2tfm, which works for both dvipdfmx and 
pdftex; are they supposedly to be the same, or at least functionally identical, 
to those from fontforge? Maybe I'll compare the two sets and see if I can see 
what fontforge is doing wrong; hacking at fontforge itself without an idea 
first isn't practical for my hardware.
