I checked your test.pdf in Adobe Reader 9, and realized what the  
problem is.
But the PDF file was generated by LuaTeX. So I tested the attached  
font with
tex as follows:

1. mytest.tex:

\special{pdf:mapline upm2048cff upm2048cff <upm2048cff.otf <ascii.enc}

\test\input tufte\par

2. upm2048cff.tfm: Just copied ptmr7t.tfm
3. ascii.enc: Copied 7t.enc and changed entries from 0x00 to 0x1f  
to /.notdef.
4. mytest.dvi: Just run 'tex mytest'
5. mytest.pdf: Just run 'dvipdfmx mytest'.

The font handling code of dvipdfmx is the same as xdvipdfmx. But the  
pdf result
"mytest.pdf" can be seen in Adobe Reader 9, even though the character  
is weird.

Could you show me any DVI (or XDV) file which cause your problem?

Best regards, ChoF.
