I don't know "waterfall", and I have to go to work right now, but...
My first guess would be: you're using an old copy of FontForge.
In the release notes for FreeFont:
Updated file format to Spline Font Database (SFD) 2
(so now we can use recent versions of FontForge)
The recent versions of FontForge are much superior to those of a
couple of years ago. Besides being much more stable, they now
do quite thorough checking for font problems. Thanks to George!
The SFD files I uploaded look fine with FontForge from CVS 14-Feb-2008.
