Are you using bundled or external GD library? What freetype 
library are you using? 
 [2004-06-01 23:00 UTC] supermario at gmx dot net
On Linux I use the bundled GD lib and Freetype 2.1.4 and on Windows I use the included GD2 DLL.

Please provide a link (or mail) to the font and a short to reproduce your problem (create an image, draw the text).

@Pierre, I sent you a mail with used font, PHP script and results of PHP 4.3.5RC1 and PHP 4.3.7RC1.

The font sounds ok and works with FT2 (outside php).

In PHP 4.3.7 the bug with that font still occurs.

Found work around. A fix in GD to work with MS Symbols does not take care if we relly have a Symbol family font. Many faces could be available. But checking the font family ('Symbol') seems to make it.

Commit over the weekend.
