[JAVA2D] Request for corrupt fonts
As many of you may be aware, there are some Java bugs (4482430 and
related) that cause the JVM to crash when loading corrupt fonts. These
result in the creation of a hs_err_pidxxxx.log file with contents
starting something like this:
An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
Unexpected Signal : EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION occurred at PC=0x6D19A348
Some crashes occurred in 1.4.0, fewer in 1.4.1, and fewer still in 1.4.2
I'm hoping to get a hold of some font files that will cause these
crashes. I'd like to test my own Java program with these corrupt font
files, and possibly write my own font testing program to help my
customers identify which fonts on their system give Java problems.
If you have any font files that you know crash Java in any 1.4+ JDK,
please send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please don't send them
to the list. I imagine not everyone would appreciate that...) Or if
you have a link to the fonts, send that to everyone.
PS: If anyone else is looking for corrupt fonts, let me know and I'll
send you whatever I get from the group.
