I don't know what's wrong with the font, but it makes the FDK's ttxn tool crash, which probably isn't good.

Code:
macbookpro:osx dg$ ./ttxn  /Users/dg/Downloads/ex/OEBPS/Fonts/DejaVuLGCSerif-Italic.ttf 
Dumping "/Users/dg/Downloads/ex/OEBPS/Fonts/DejaVuLGCSerif-Italic.ttf" to "/Users/dg/Downloads/ex/OEBPS/Fonts/DejaVuLGCSerif-Italic#1.ttx"...
Dumping 'FFTM' table...
Dumping 'GDEF' table...
Dumping 'OS/2' table...
Dumping 'cmap' table...
Dumping 'cvt ' table...
Dumping 'fpgm' table...
Dumping 'gasp' table...
Dumping 'head' table...
Dumping 'hhea' table...
Dumping 'hmtx' table...
Dumping 'kern' table...
Dumping 'loca' table...
Dumping 'maxp' table...
Dumping 'name' table...
Dumping 'post' table...
Dumping 'prep' table...
Dumping 'GSUB' table ...
Dumping 'GPOS' table ...
Dumping 'glyf' table ...
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "./../SharedData/FDKScripts/ttxn.py", line 2185, in <module>
    run(sys.argv[1:])

  File "/Users/dg/Downloads/FDK/Tools/osx/Python/Current/lib/python2.7/subprocess.py", line 1202, in _execute_child
    raise child_exception

From the partial output, though:

Code:
<map code="0xfb02" name="fl"/>
in various CMAP tables and

Code:
      <ClassDef glyph="fl" class="2"/>
in the GlyphClassDef. And there's an entry in the horizontal metrics table, too. And when I open it in Fontographer, I can see the "fl" glyph.

Is the attached file perhaps the original?

[Edit: Never mind. That sample was from a different poster. Still, there's something dubious about that font. ]
