Mea Culpa ... :(
After a fair amount of digging, I've traced both of these problems
back to my own code (Mostly the cache I had to add to manage all
the FT_Face instances...).
Currently, I've got text rendering basically correct (Still some
issues I need to investigate), and it's looking pretty good! :)
Sorry for the distraction (And thanks for the help!)
