Yes, that's what I meant.  And I'm having a lot of fun using git-commit

Ok, it should have been marked as XFAIL then.  We need some force if we
ever want to release 1.4.  Anyone can help here?  Looking into the XFAIL
tests seeinf if they can be fixed?  Also in Carl's summary of stuff that
need to be fixed (should be in ROADMAP).

Adrian, how's the TTF stuff looking?  When I tried, copy/paste was still
not quite there even in acroread for Linux.
