Hello freetypers :-)

Attached image show problem which we have with FT 2.0.4 and same problem
is in 2.1.0 release.
Font is mingliu.ttc from Win2K. This character is 0x5000 in Unicode.
Left is rendering from our application using FreeType for getting
character path and right is from WordPad from Win2K. Sizes are not
completly same, but problem is visible. "same" problem is in same font
in a lot of other characters. (we getting unhinted contours from FT)
This font, as well as a few other ones from DynaLab _cannot_ return
correct un-hinted glyph outlines _by_design_. That's because they use
some very specific tricks of the TrueType bytecode interpreter
(which isn't run if FT_LOAD_NO_HINTING is used when calling FT_Load_Glyph)

Try loading them with hinting instead, it should solve your problem..

It looks like wrong scaling of sub-glyphs.
Same character in font SimSun looks same in our app and win2k.

Is this known bug? Or it is some problem with TT bytecode interpreter?
(We have it switched on)

Hope this helps,
