In Ubuntu, the attached patch was applied to prevent a crash when reading optimized png files.

Ubuntu routinely runs optipng on installed png files, and that revealed a bug in fontforge's built-in png reader code.  This probably isn't super important for Debian, as you don't run optipng, but it appears to be a real bug and would let us get in sync again if it was applied.

I've also forwarded this patch to the fontforge mailing list.

Thanks for considering the patch.
