	wsfont/qvss8x15 control structure says the font has characters
	32..255. However there is no data for characters 127..160 in
	the data array. In another words the data array is too short.
	This is especially nasty if the wsfont system decides to
	convert the font in-place to use different bit/byte order in which
	case innocent memory after the data array gets modified.
	Code inspection, or try to use the font with 
	Find the missing character data from somewhere..?
	Or lacking that change the control struct to say it only has
	characters 32..126.
