Love relationship between Illustrator and FontLab broken with CS5

In the article Using Illustrator to draw fonts for importing into FontLab , which I wrote several years ago, I describe how nice it is to use Illustrator and FontLab together. … The only workaround I can think of so far is to make little box (let’s say 10×10 pt) within the glyph slot along with the glyph, position it on the 0.0 point corner and copy it over to Illustrator along with the glyph.
