reftest with Windows 7 / trunk

Under Windows 7, the reftest src-format-arabic.html reftest in reftests/font-face fails to load the Arabic font as expected, it instead shows the failback font.

P.S. This is Jonathan's font!  Strangely, the OT version is rejected but Windows loads the AAT version but renders without shaping, ick.

This is caused by a 5000-byte restriction that Microsoft placed on fonts loaded via t2embed in a security update pushed out in mid-July.  This affects all fonts that use the Open Font License.

Trimming the long records from the name table solves the problem:
