If you can get your development server in shape to reproduce the
errors, that would be a big step forwards.

Are there a handful of easily identified fonts used in your application?
And where do they live - in an app-specific directory, or in reportlab/fonts,
or somewhere else?

Feel free to email me directly; I'll be online again in about 3 hours
and working late, and
will try to suggest some code to preload fonts or at least to produce some
trace statements.

This one is very interesting to us, precisely because it's so rare.
