I tried both CHIBARAK.ttf & BOARDS.ttf, but couldn't make an error; of course
that's with your patch in place. Can you say what I'm supposed to do to make the
number of contours problem appear (perhaps which version of python to use). I
assumed that just opening up the file with TTFont(name,path) would blow up, but
perhaps I have to try something els.
