Severity: normal

--- Please enter the report below this line. ---

The characters for U+00FC (LATIN SMALL LETTER U WITH DIAERESIS) and its
uppercase version (U+00DC,) seem to have zero width, and the are drawn
overlapped with the next letter.

The problem seems to be a bad glyph class, and can be fixed if opened
in FontForge by selecting the glyph, "Element" > "Glyph Info...", and
setting "OT Glyph Class" to "Base Glyph" (repeat for both glyphs.)

It seems at least a few other glyphs have the same problem.
