That's what I thought.

Eh, seac isn't part of the T2 spec. I suppose you mean CFF with T1 CharStrings?

Ok. Maybe I'll have a look tomorrow. Ah, right, if the FontMatrix is
[0.001, 0, 0, 0.001, 0, 0] it is not supplied in the file, as it's the
default value. So the only difference between the two fonts that could have
an impact is the FontMatrix being present in the Oblique font and not in
the regular. Hm.
