Another data point: a recent svn version of matplotlib segfaults on my

Looks like a freetype bug: the following code segfaults when linked
against libfreetype.6.3.10 but not when linked against
libfreetype.6.3.16. Freetype has some code to read dfont files, which
apparently had a bug in the older version, and this is triggered by the
new code that reads in all font files.
