Yech.  I suspect this is a bug in Ghostscript, though I could be
reading the PostScript reference wrong.  Could you take a look at
section 5.11.3 (CIDFont Dictionaries), the entry for selectfont in the
operator index (page 656, or PDF page 670), and the entry for
glyphshow (page 602, PDF page 616)?
