If you are moving to a newer player version than 11.1, I think you have to
make sure you have the appropriate FlashPlayerDebugger.

If you are using older player versions you should still be able to use a
later player.  But the fact that your tests passed and mine didn't indicates
that the player changed its font rendering without switching it with a
version flag.  Which is useful, but somewhat disturbing information as it
potentially increases the number of possible rendering environments.

I have code locally that will store the display list as XML alongside each
baseline, but I haven't check it in.  I thought it would be too disruptive
and was going to wait until after we get the release out.

In fact, after we get the release out, I think I want to move mustella to
its own top-level folder.  I originally thought we had to keep it inside
each branch because test results would need adjusting with each release, but
I think we've found and fixed a lot of the instabilities so now it is
probably better to make the mustella tests a central reference point and
maybe have a second (and significantly smaller or empty) tree of tests in
each branch for branch-specific results.

If you've downloaded a branch, you know that the major consumer of time is
the downloading of the mustella tests, and if I add an XML file to each
.png, it will get even slower.

Anyway, I don't think you have to do another run at this point unless you
want to.  And if you do switch to player 10.3, expect a lot of failures.
