italic correction

I use Fontinst 1.801 and got the following problem:

If `ItalicAngle' is equal zero in an afm file, than the \if_italic flag
is set `false' by the \calculate_it_slant macro. In result, even if some
glyphs should have an italic correction, it is zeroed up in the
\afm_char macro. IMHO, this logic is quite wrong: many upright fonts
contain glyphs which require italic corrections. For example, one may
take /f from Times-Roman or Times-Bold.

Any ideas?
