Wrong outlines loaded

When opening the attached font file with FontCreator 10.1.0, the outlines are not the ones that appear to be in the font from all other ways of looking at it.
Here's the font as it appears in MainType:

And, here is it opened in FontCreator:

My only thought was that some other font file was interfering, but I don't have a font by that same name anywhere else on the system. Is there any setting in a font file that can cause it to render as italic/slanted even though the outlines are not?

This is not a bug in FontCreator. The italic flag is enabled in Font Properties.

OK, so then the FontCreator bug is that the preview on FontCreator doesn't show the font in italics, like every other program does. Also, the "test current font as TTF/OTF" view doesn't show the italics.

Both of these should display the font rendered as it will actually render by any other software.

There is indeed something fishy with this font.

I'll see if I can locate the issue.

This bug will be fixed with the next major release.

Thanks. Glad to know I'm not going crazy.
