I just commented out the lines 188-191 in ttload.c (check_table_dir

/* if ( table.Offset + table.Length > stream->size &&
           table.Tag != glyx_tag                      &&
           table.Tag != locx_tag                      )
        return SFNT_Err_Unknown_File_Format;

Instead of requiring that all table entries have correct values, maybe it is
better to check whether there is any table entry with the correct offsets.
If there is no table entry (or maybe 2-3 entries) with correct offsets than
the file is probably not a TrueType (or is completely corrupt).

Basically, I agree.  It would be possible to rewrite `check_table_dir'
and `tt_face_load_font_dir' so that it ignores table directory entries with
invalid offsets instead.  Ideally, there should be support for
FT_VALIDATE_xxx settings so that strict behaviour can be enforced.

Can you provide a patch?
