           Summary: msttf causes firefox to crash
           Product: Codex
           Version: z-rejected grimoire
          Platform: x86
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: fonts
        AssignedTo: sm-grimoire-bugs at lists.ibiblio.org
        ReportedBy: dkowis at shlrm.org

I had firefox and msttf installed. I would encounter randomish crashes. What
tipped me off to msttf: in the strace I ran, the last thing before the segfault
was an open of arial.ttf

I removed msttf, firefox's font's were ugly, but no crashes at all. Asked on
irc, wasn't able to reproduce.

I know p3pilot had other issues with arial fonts and gtk apps. I only had
issues with firefox. xchat and thunderbird worked fine.

A good set of alternatives are:
freefont-ttf unfonts-ttf dejavu-ttf essays1743-ttf isabella-ttf
ttf-bitstream-vera ttf-arkpandora
