Help needed - CreateScalableFontResource

I will test the patch tonight.

I will just mention that I got permission to give the fonts in question 
to the subscribers of this list for the purpose of making this app work. 
It's useful when the person most interested in this app on Linux is the 
copyright holder's lawer..... :-)

Anyone who thinks having the actual Font will help is encouraged to 
contact me via email, and I'll send it.

On a related note - though I couldn't use the font from Wine in an 
unrelated app, I could use it in Windows. There is one, possibly 
important, difference, however. While in Wine I installed the font, on 
Windows I opened my test app while the other app was running (and thus - 
exporting the font).
