I don't know about xdvi's use of t1lib (that is specific to xdvik, not
plain xdvi), but I've been playing with adding freetype2 support to xdvi,
and I also get an error with freetype2. What happens is it returns error
code 6 (invalid argument) when I call FT_Load_Glyph() for the character.
So, I think it's either the font or t1lib/freetype2.
