Cm-super fonts lacks BlueValues and OtherBlues entries in PS Private values. 
Therefore they are badly displayed by Adobe Reader. These values could be 
generated with the fontforge using the script attached. Also this script 
rearranges the contours and first points (this makes the files smaller) and 
rehints the fonts (this could be removed by deleting  "AutoHint();\" ). The 
script works as follows:

1. Copy all the pfb and afm files into a directory
2. Run the script
3. Move the resulting files into appropriate places.

V. Volovich knows about it but have not done anything.
