I'm trying to remember which font I needed this for, but I encountered  
one that used vertex-references to define composite glyphs (a case  
that in the old reader was implemented as "self halt"). These were  
only in the > 256 char code range so the problem did not manifest  
before. It might have been dejavu-lgc bold or italic I think.

For this I had to defer the #buildContours call until all glyphs were  
processed, otherwise the vertex indices were off. Attaching my  
(possibly outdated) code.
