Another finding that suggests pdftex is blameless. If I compile the
TeX source with latex and view the DVI using xdvik I see the same
FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="type1:hinting-engine=adobe" xdvi test.dvi
gives corrupted results while
FREETYPE_PROPERTIES="type1:hinting-engine=freetype" xdvi test.dvi
I've submitted a freetype2 bug at savannah.
