yes this seems the root of the problem. The pfb files were converted using
a number of tools and I honestly cannot recall exactly how it was done.
there is a tugboat article https://www.tug.org/TUGboat/tb24-1/thanh.pdf

I wish I had the time to fix this problem, but I have other things that
have higher priority
on my todo list.
If someone would like to work on this, I will do my best to make all info
and tools available.
