If I try to install the font on my Mac, it cries out with
   1 minor problem was found. Proceed with caution.
   2 serious errors were found. Do not use these fonts.

The errors seem to be in 'post' and 'kern' tables, the warnings in 'sfnt'.

A simple example like

\font\a=Orlando.ttf \a abc

crashes on my computer as well:

fonts           > otf loading > loading: Orlando.ttf (hash: orlando)
mtx-context     | fatal error: no return code, message: luatex:
execution interrupted

So: the font is definitely buggy, but it would be nice if luatex would
catch the problem and refuse to load the font instead of crashing.
