Thank you, there was indeed a bug in the code for finding a
font that led to the first extra font becoming replaced by
the second (so an attempt to load it failed and a NULL poin-
ter was passed to the drawing routine for the font:-(

This is now fixed for both the 'ttf' and 'utf8' development
versions and new tar balls for them, 'xforms-1.3.12.tar.gz'
and 'xforms-1.3.13.tar.gz' have been uploaded to Savannah.

As you may habe seen I've now made the condensed versions
the primary defaults in the new 'utf8' version as I also
found that they're more similar to the old X11 fonts. So
this doesn't seem to be some artefact of my set-up. Good
to know.

Thank you very much for testing!

                         Best regards, Jens
