I seem to have multiple versions of this font, with widely varying sizes:

d380bf638b09b1fe766717069ba20f10  /tmp/AHEM____.TTF   (12480 bytes)
187af159748ff2a72bdf503b130de917  /tmp/ahem____.ttf   (31536 bytes)

The smaller one is the one at that address above.  I have no idea where the
other larger one came from, except that it was almost certainly found via
Google or a link from one of the CSS test suites a couple of years or so
ago.  Is this one at that address on Ian's site the definitive version?  Is
there actually a definitive version at all, for that matter?
