Another CFF (Type 2) font using invalid Type 1 commands.  Here, the
failing instruction is command 12 16 (callothersubr).

You should punish the author of the PDF creating software by writing
an angry mail, complaining that it converts Type 1 fonts to crap!

Your mail implies that other PDF software (probably Acroread) can
display this particular glyph.  Is this correct?  If so, I'll convert
the error into a warning, and handle callothersubr as a no-op.[1]


[1] Assuming that, say, Acroread handles this glyph, it would be an
    interesting question whether callothersubr is processed or whether
    it simply ignores it.
