Hi all --

I just had an interesting font-rendering bug on Windows. All on a sudden, all glyphs turned invisible. Only the uppercase S remained. It was a TTCFont. Then the VM crashed. Maybe this is related?

You called it - it does seem to be in the BitBltPlugin.

I rebuilt this VM.

in all 3 versions, normal, debug, and assert.

Of course the debug and assert builds run fine.

The backtrace is below.

I'll see if I can get some form of -Osomething and -g to work (ie crash) such that this is easier to debug

It's very simple.

1. Sit down at your desk.
2. Check to make sure that your desk is wood. Concrete is not a wise choice.
3. Move everything of value to further than an arms reach.
4. Slam your head into the desk until you head drives itself through and leaves a head shaped hole.
5. Start gdb. At this point gdb will make sense.
