Will do. Sitting in front of a win32 box right now, but I've got
plenty of time tomorrow to go through this on the mac. Adrian, when
you say 'find out where it is failing', what're you after - sounds
like the only failure in cairo in test (5) is failing to subset
TrueType, which doesn't sound too useful - its not going to tell us
how to get CFF subsetting working? Or do you just mean that the
TrueType subsetting shouldn't fail here in the first place?

In the meantime, if you have any sample pdfs you want me to test like
last time, just fire away (brian dot ewins at gmail dot com).
