GS 6.50 passed this test fine.

Also please pay attention to double slashes in font pathes,
in which GS tries to locate fonts.

After additional testing I found that all GS 6.12, 6.50, HEAD don't work properly, but each one is its unique manner.
For instance, with GS 6.50 findfont works, but /Font resourceforall does not. With HEAD it's vise versa.

I guess that Adobe is not the reason, but GS file system is. 

The test suite is now replaced with a bigger one.

The problem is not the "GS file system". findfont and Font/resourceforall are very difficult to keep consistent, because the same logic algorithms must be implemented in two different ways. I recommend looking for the problem in lib/gs_fonts.ps, lib/gs_res.ps, and lib/gs_cidcm.ps.
