Yes, this is because the truetype font support is not complete yet. Once

Can you update it and I'll toss it into CVS?

That would be more flexible...

Can you please enter that as a bug?

printfs, unless you have gdb with LinuxThreads support.

Please do! I started doing that, but I won't have time to finish it. I
grabbed the source code to kbiff and started modifying it to be a freeamp
