Well, I didn't understand it either. But you are right about the
incorrect access, the defect is about bi being NULL.

Here are the url for the defects, they seems to work, I don't know for
how long. Otherwise, I'll copy the defect page elsewhere.





Also, Coverity updated their databases with yesterday fixes.

There are two new defects for some cases which were not completely fixed
with yesterday patches.

First one is in fcfreetype.c, some deadcode was still there. Based on
bedhad comment ("if you ask me, you should remove both goto Fail's in
that loop. it's trying to list scripts supported by the font, and if one
of the subtables is missing, we can simply ignore that script, instead
of failing the entire operation), I've cooked one patch which remove two
of the goto to fix defect #2088.

The other defect is a memory leak in FcPatternFreeze (fcpat.c) in error
case (defect #2089).
