OK, damn, this is indeed the mystery error. It has reared its ugly
head on various (three, as far as I can see) win32 machines and not
others and noone has figured out why. Unfortunately, I can't
reproduce it and don't know how to fix it. Please post as much
information about your system (exact OS, which service pack,
motherboard/cpu, where you got python from, etc) as possible because
it may be helpful down the road.
I think you may be failing in the font load section. Could you rerun
your test script one more time with --verbose-debug and report that in
addition to the information above?
This is not a mystery error. This error pops up on some bad fonts
when the FontManager creates the dictionary of TTF based fonts.
An example is the CSD Font that installs with jgrasp (jgrasp.org).
BTW: As the bakoma fonts are free now, is this ttf cache needed
by default anymore? The CTAN bakoma.zip includes now 140 TTF fonts.
