>From what I gathered from the font bugs noted above they are KACST
related - I'm no font expert, but what I did notice is that the
KACST fonts only advertise the arabic glyphs (in their info section)
and don't even mention having latin glyphs.  It _could_ be that that
is what the bugs noted above are complaining about.

You might again tell the KACST people to join some of our lists to
discuss these issues (I've tried on a NUMBER of occasion) and/or
direct them to look into and fix this problem ASAP.
