bubulle has kindly uploaded the new version of ttf-dejavu (2.16-1).
I took the usual screenshots; please refer to [1] to see what changed
since version 2.15.

The screenshots can be found in [2], where you can see what changed
from the previous version.
You'll notice there are many differences: it is a bug in pango, which
is said to be currently worked on.
For those who care here is a conversation on #dejavu about the problem:

<moyogo>	i think it's the latn {DNK DFLT} that makes pango overkern
<moyogo>	i think it's this bug http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=334758
<moyogo>	it only seems to be affecting Latin script, so it's probably overkerning with pango
<zinosat>	but what triggered it just starting with 2.16?
<eugen>	kerning classes?
<moyogo>	no
<moyogo>	it's the two languages DNK and dflt
<moyogo>	before 2.16 the kerning was only latn {dflt}
<moyogo>	now it's latn {DNK, dflt}
<eugen>	moyogo: is there any reason why pango is not fixed yet?
<eugen>	or do they think that this is not a bug?
<Med>	if DejaVu doesn't break things, they won't be fixed
<moyogo>	no, behdad wants to fix it, but i think he wants to fix bigger things in the process
