That would take a good look at the source code to see how PHP is passing arguments to 
the GD library.

Fixing "null" status.

So, is this a GD Bug, or a PHP bug?

Ok, I checked out filemon.
Here's what's happening:
GD first tries to open files inside the Apache root (not the web root; for instance, 
on my box, C:\Program Files\Apache. So, if I've specified "C:\\path\\to\\font.ttf" in 
my path, I end up with:
C:\Program Files\Apache\C\C:\path\to\font.ttf.ttf

Next, it tries the current directory. However, it seems to be unable to process 
Windows drive letters, and so defaults to drive C: (my webroot's on D:, which is a 
problem), so I get

You get the idea. I made a directory structure on C: mimicing that of my D: webroot, 
but only containing the fonts; it worked fine (although the antialiasing was horrific, 
but that's a GD/FT2 issue).

Pretty sure, but it doesn't work the other way around either.

Are you sure that GD understands d:/path/to/font.ttf as a path?
Should it be d:\\path\\to\\font.ttf ?

please use filemon ( to find out where php/gd is searching for 
the fonts, and report back.
