Oh sorry, didn't see there was a patch :D

Some minor things to fix: 
 * move the initialization to false to the init function
 * The "Symbol" line seems to be misaligned
 * It'd be cool if the 13 in getIndexBaseFont was sizeof(base14Fonts)-1 or the 
correct formula for that that gives you 13 (we use that in some places afaik, 
do some grep)

Besides that if you give me a pdf that gets rendered better with the patch i 
don't see why we shouldn't commit it.
