Well it's good to finally understand that problem. I'm using NT4.0 SP4. I
understand I'll be using Windows 2000 sometime in the near future, so I'll
wait it out.

What version of Windows are you using? What service pack?

There is a bug in the font cache of NT4 that will cause problems if you have
too many fonts installed (especialy big fonts like this one). It will give
the very symptoms you discuss here.

Windows 2000 does not have this bug.
