Not working ^^

Only works when using the default font and not an external one which, i suppose use the FontExtend class.

Try using the echelon.ttf font inside the testFont with an empty HelpMsg and see for yourself.

Also i had added a workaround l:81 in this test to avoid crashing on newline (aka empty line), u will be able to remove it when this bug will be really fixed ;)

The rendering has been changed and is now working either with SDL_TTF or without.
This bug should have been impacted at the same time.
It apprently has been fixed as Font::render("",...) renders nothing, which is the expected behavior.

When trying to create an RGBSurface * using the Font::render() method with an empty string ("") it will crash on run on BaseSurface::getHeight().

Render a " " solve the pb when i want to display nothing but the bug is still there.
