[swfmill] defineFont2 vs defineFont3

Well, in case anyone is interested, I just learned that the problem with
the corrupted swf when another swf with an embedded font was imported
via swfmill library seems to be related to the fact that the imported
swf (Logo.swf in my example below) had a setting called "anti-alias for
reading" on the text fields. When we changed them to "anti-alias for
animation" which is the same setting that the textfields in the template
swf use then it created a good swf.
I'd still like to understand more why <defineFont2> is used in the
windows version I have and <defineFont3> is used in the linux version?
And is there any way I can control it?

Subject: defineFont2 vs defineFont3
I'm experiencing a problem that I need some help understanding.
If I create a swf with swfmill from using:
swfmill simple mov.xml my.swf
where mov.xml has
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<movie version="8" width="300" height="250" framerate="24">
<clip id="logo_mc" import="library/Logo.swf" />
<clip id="image_mc" import="library/image.jpg"
<font name="font1" import="fonts/georgia.ttf"
<clip id="template" import="template.swf" />
<place id="template" depth="0" />
My question has to do with what determines when an imported font gets
put in as a <defineFont2> tag versus a <defineFont3> tag.
For me, on windows it gets put in as defineFont2 and on linux
Should it matter?
My actual problem is that when one of the clip's imported using the
mov.xml above (like logo_mc) contains an embedded font I'm getting a
corrupt swf built. Swfmill gives no errors and makes it, but it just
crashes on attempting to view it. But it only happens on linux. The
exact same stuff is fine on windows where it happens that my font I'm
sticking in with certain glyphs (from mov.xml) is put in as
Anyone have any ideas on this? I'm using a build Ralf gave me from
around Apr 8, 2008 for windows called 2.12.6 and using a linux build
from source also around Apr 8, 2008.
Any ideas/help greatly appreciated.
