I labeled it as an exceptional case because FreeType did (not to disclaim
responsibility, but to notice that I used no first-hand knowledge of fonts
when making this decision).

Is there some sensible way to automatically tell whether global advance is
giving bogus values? I don't even care how expensive it is to compute as
we can do it at font scan time instead of font load time.
