I don't understand this? How are CID resources supposed to be loaded now?

According to the Postscript reference, selectfont can be used with CID
resources as well as regular fonts.  Unfortunately, I can't make the
utf-8 regression test work either with or without my changes, so I
can't be sure I got this right.

unfortunately, Ghostscript disagrees. It throws a /typecheck error from --glyphshow-- , if you load the font as a regular font.
