** It's still tricky to work with CJK fonts, in general, but that can't explain 
the result of the font file attached, except the fact that the interpreter is very confused 
by the glyphs datas. Is this due to the use of the bytecode to scale subglyphs only ?
I'm not sure.
On the other hand, I don't think you'd be surprised by the poor quality of some 
commercial fonts that I was asked to rework.
