Looks like this might be a fontforge or FreeType problem.  Windows
courier at 13 ppem should have an ascent of 11 and a descent of 2,
which is what we have in the .sfd.  Now, when I run sfnt2fnt on the
generated .ttf I get an ascent of 13, ppem of 13 and hence a descent
of 0.

I'm not going to have time to look into this soon, so please feel free
to investigate more.
