Problem getting bitmap fonts into the image

Last time I used BDFFontReader (it was a long time ago) in conjunction with
pcf2bdf tool I had to change BDFFontReader>>#getLine to:

    | line |
    [line isEmptyOrNil] whileTrue: [line _ self upTo: Character cr].

because generated bdf files had empy strings in unexpected (to
BDFFontReader) places.
Hope this helps
