What font are you using here? The CairoFont-x-y name instead of the real font
name indicates that a cairo fallback font was embedded. This is the result of
either cairo not supporting subsetting of this font or the subsetting failed.
In both cases cairo generates a CFF font from the font outlines.

Could you do some further testing with various truetype and opentype/cff fonts
to give me some more data on what works and what doesn't. Does the patch help
with truetype fonts?
