Package: ttf-dejavu
Version: 2.14-1
Severity: serios
Tags: l10n
Justification: should not reach Etch until this is fixed


As it can be seen in the attached screenshot and [2], the a breve and a
circumflex glyphs are broken. This was not the case with 2.13-1 (as seen
in the screenshots prvided by Davide[1].

To be more exact it seem like as if a cross made of 1 pixel wide lines
was removed from the glyph and all the pieces were put back together
(the ceter would be at the bottom line of the diacritic mark and the
horizontal center of the glyph.

This adds blur to the glyph and makes the a breve character look like a
with an umlaut.
