Ooops. I Installed Luxi because this has been requested by you, after I
reported the problem. So the problem existed before I installed Luxi,
here seemingly some other TTF font was in progress when the error
emerged. Of course I will remove Luxi if you don't need it for having me
do tests with same installed.

Of course I already reverted the system to the original state (i.e. the
TTF that had been installed by the SUSE distribution in the /truetype
dir. But seemingly LAZFont (and other TTF aware programs) don't care
about the directory the ttf files are in, as long as it is a subdir of

That is what I tried as a result of your requesting me to test with
Luxi. I removes all other TTF fonts but the Luxis. So the result is:
- Crash with some TTFs but without Luxis
- Crash with no TTFs but the Luxis
So - as the Luxis seem to work for you - I conclude that the problem is
not the internals of any TTF files.

Of course I do know this.
In fact I don't consider to _use_ Customdrawn, I am just trying to help,
as I think it is a very interesting project, that I might want to use
some day in the future.
(OK, In the Lazarus forum I learned that this qualifies me to be a troll. )
