2.57 crashes when i try to render an imported font with only three words.....

So i have a font, loaded it, and while the text isnt perfect its passable, i type in three words, and try to render it. and blender crashes…
is this a bug?

I dont think its my computer, coz its quite powerful, and has handled serious renders,

also i do the same in Bfont and its instant…

so i guess it is the font. any suggestions?


would you like someone else to try this font ?
Did you convert to mesh and take a look in edit mode. I don’t know why just what I would do.
Is the font a ttf file ?
