      Description

      I have been using a particular TrueType font with
      many previous versions of PDFBox. It loaded and worked fine
      up to version 1.6.0. Now at level 1.7.0, I get a
      NullPointerException when attempting to load this
      TTF file:

      Exception: java.lang.NullPointerException
      java.lang.NullPointerException
      at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDTrueTypeFont.loadDescriptorDictionary(PDTrueTypeFont.java:319)
      at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDTrueTypeFont.loadTTF(PDTrueTypeFont.java:166)
      at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDTrueTypeFont.loadTTF(PDTrueTypeFont.java:142)
      at org.apache.pdfbox.pdmodel.font.PDTrueTypeFont.loadTTF(PDTrueTypeFont.java:129)
      at test.<init>(test.java:23)
      at test.main(test.java:36)

      My testcase (simply performing a loadTTF()) works with 1.6.0
      of PDFBox. This font is certainly an oldie, but it does validate
      using "Font Book" on my Mac. That program looks through a TrueType font,
      checking all internal tables for correctness.

      I have attached a copy of the .ttf file.
