Using a pure PostScript Type 1 font with no TeX support from my  
PostScript 3 printer, xdvipdfmx tells me when converting the XDV file  
to PDF:

	** ERROR ** Invalid font: -1 (1)

  Is there no way no name the erroneous font on the command line/in  
the error output? Isn't there also a variable available that depicts  
the cause? And that also could be used for more explanatory output?
