OK, I feel like an idiot.

I opened OOo and tried to write some ô characters and was surprised to see that now the proper glyph
was shown for the sans version, and, and, ... behold, when I changed the font to serif I got the
broken glyph.

Still, don't be hasty, I can't get the sample since when I saved the file with both the sans and the
serif ô, closed OOo writer and reopened the file ... tum-tum tum-tum, both types were correct TA-DA!

I tired several ways to reproduce the problem, but I wasn't able to.

Now I not able to reproduce the problem anymore, so please do what you please with this bug.
