Package: vim-gtk
Version: 2:7.4.488-5
Followup-For: Bug #760873

Hi James,
yes, it's totally related to the font face used:

$ gvim -u NONE -c 'set guifont=PragmataPro\ 12'
  ** (gvim:26280): CRITICAL **: ascii_glyph_table_init: assertion
  'gui.ascii_glyphs->num_glyphs == sizeof(ascii_chars)' failed

With this particular font all characters are messed up (screenshot

Here's a related discussion:

Let me know if I can help in any other way.
