Yes.  What version of FreeType are you using?  They changed the semantics 
of how bitmap instances were labeled which broke some stuff.  It may be 
that we need to look first at y_ppem/x_ppem and then, failing that, look 
at width/height.  I sent in a patch to FreeType to fix the BDF/PCF loaders 
to match the TTF loader, I don't know whether that's in a released version 
or not.
