Summary: error copying .pfb font to pdf

Initial Comment:
I'm an user of MikTeX package (vers 2.4) and uses 
pdfLaTeX on a regular basis.

I bought a Poscript Type 1 Sabon Font family from 
Monotype and when using the italic (msbri8a.pfb) 
pdfeTex has a problem and stops writing output. The 
pdf is unusable.

I checked the .pfb and its Ok. I can use it with 
Latex but then I have other problems (graphics, and 
symbol fonts).

Here is an extract of the log file:

This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.21a-2.2 (MiKTeX 
2.4) (preloaded format=latex 2005.11.7)  9 NOV 2005

Error: pdflatex (file C:\localtexmf\fonts\type1

 ==> Fatal error occurred, the output PDF file is not 
finished!

----------------------------
If you need, I have all the 
necessary .pfb, .afm, .tfm, .fd, .vf, .map, .enc, .sty
 and a short .tex file to reproduce the problem. 
Anyway I attach them so you have them if you need.

Many thanks in advance

it's likely that this is solved in a newer version. I can't
check without the font. Try to retest on 1.30.4 from MiKTeX.
Or you might send me the pack of test files to
hartmut_henkel at gmx dot de.

Regards, Hartmut
