OK, finally I can reproduce this, and it errors on other interpreters too. I'm
not sure why this is a problem but it clearly is, so I'll look into it. It
looks like the LZWEncoded data is incorrect, clearly its OK when not
compressed, and when the LZW data is ASCII85 encoded.

I don't think there is a font error here at all, not compressing the font
simply means that the image data is not LZW compressed. Whatever your reason
for not using ASCII85, its not the same thing.
