The arithmetic error was due to a failure of the redisplay engine to
calculate tab widths correctly when the current font's space character
has a width of zero.  I've fixed this, but the issue of why the font has
zero space width remains unsolved.

As a result, the tab widths in `M-x about-emacs' are now zero, which is
an obvious regression from Emacs 22.

The problem at hand is the following code in ftfont_open

      int n;

      font->min_width = font->average_width = font->space_width = 0;
      for (i = 32, n = 0; i < 127; i++)
        if (FT_Load_Char (ft_face, i, FT_LOAD_DEFAULT) != 0)
            int this_width = ft_face->glyph->metrics.horiAdvance >> 6;

            if (this_width > 0
                && (! font->min_width || font->min_width > this_width))
              font->min_width = this_width;
            if (i == 32)
              font->space_width = this_width;
            font->average_width += this_width;

      if (n > 0)
        font->average_width /= n;

For some reason, this gives zero.  Handa-san, do you have any insight?
