Debian GNU/Linux unstable version uses r171 and I received a bug report about missing umlaute.

For example, oauOAU in umlaute.ps have an umlaute, but gs-esp won't show umlaute. gs-gpl or xpdf(after ps2pdf) show correctly.
When I reverted gstype42.c to previous revision, 'oau' showed correct umlaute (but OAU still hadn't).

I believe CJKV patch makes something wrong around a metrics.

I have uploaded the file "umlaute_fonts.ps" to illustrate how different fonts are rendered. Some have no accents, some have a few and some have them all.

Can anyone confirm this bug?

This problem is rather critical for all people who need to print accented characters!

I confirmed.
166:164 revert patch shows umlaute again.

I'd like to hear explains from committer toshi.

Fixed in Subversion repository.

Looks like the new TrueType bounding box loader code isn't quite right - I've #ifdef'd the new code out until we can fix that part, which corrects the rendering of this file...
