Thank you very much! :-) It is become difficult to inform gs-team about the new bugs...

Thank you also for help with enc-file. However the nature of the problem is other. There is no common t2a.enc! One cyrillic letter glyphs can have different names in the different fonts, e.g., the letter A may have name `Acyrillic', `afii10017', `uni0410', `U0410', and maybe other in the different fonts. So I ask about utility that can create t2a.enc and others for the arbitrary font.

Where should I take this `t2a.enc' or better `Cyberbas-t2a.enc' for Cyberbas.ttf?! This is the nature of my suggestion about feature.
