Right, makes sense.

I can't test that properly but I can simulate it by artificially
setting isOpenJDK false somewhere before the CFF check, this will
bring back the zero font bug again, then just add some random font I
have locally.

What's the exact name for the font I need to use exactly in the 0
slot? I can prepare the patch then let you test it in full on your
side. We're shipping the fix in our local RPM so I'm not in a rush to
push the fix, I rather prefer this is done properly.
