Too bad!! I just did some research on the vera fonts. Bitstream donated them to
open source through the gnome foundation. The four font files are broken from
the source...

That means there are no correct files to be found, and also that almost every
linux installation have the faulty files, and of course this also means that
Gecko needs to render fonts even with invalid checksum as in the vera font
case, since these broken fonts render fine with Safari for windows for example.

The files VeraBd.ttf, VeraIt.ttf, VeraSe.ttf, VeraSeBd.ttf all have checksum
in their "head" table.
