The ones with "Invalid fontname" are likely to be bitmap fonts that
XeTeX rejects them (it is certainly the case for the first and the last
ones), this is not new. The rest seems to be xdvipdfmx regressions
caused by the move away from using FreeType, but probably are old
dvipdfmx bugs that were not exposed to XeTeX users before.
