Are the Lohit fonts partially hinted?

If so, Freetype will see that there is some hinting bytecode and try to use the
bytecode interpreter. If the relevant characters are then not actually hinted,
it will fail.

According to Freetype upstream, you should remove all hinting bytecode from the
fonts if it's not complete. If Freetype sees that there's no hinting bytecode,
it will now automatically fallback to the autohinter. (I got that fixed, see
bug 547532.) But the patch doesn't help for partially hinted fonts, and
Freetype upstream told me they don't want to support these anyway.
