This is an error message from xdvipdfmx; apparently there is some  
reason why it thinks there is something wrong in the particular  
OpenType font you are using. Is this a freely available font that I  
could download somewhere and try? It may be that there really is  
something wrong in the font; or perhaps xdvipdfmx is not interpreting  
it properly.

I'd suggest you try several fonts, to see if the problem occurs with  
just this one or with others as well.

Also, if you install this font in Library/Fonts, and use xetex with  
the default xdv2pdf driver rather than xdvipdfmx, does it work properly?
