Postscript error with otf font

i generated a postscript flavoured otf font with fontlab 4.6 and osx. it works fine in multiple applications. but everytime i try to print or distill it i get a postscript error

undefined offending command: a

what i cant understand, its only one font out a little family that makes so much trouble.

what are possible reasons for such a behaviour.

thanks for your attention....fRED

Probably. With that bug, I guess I'd be concerned about having legal values for PostScript FontName, glyph names, and maybe PostScript FullName. Was there something in particular you were wondering about?

thanks for your advise, after fontlab chrashed couple of times while generating especially this font. i decided to test it on an other osx system and it works there.
i still dont know what the problem is, but it seems that it only accours on my system. in this case i give up searching for a solution.
i'm still intrested in any document or website that shows me possible postscript failures caused by fonts.
