Version: 0.4-8
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

The BetecknaLowerCase font family appears to try to render two lowercase
‘f’ characters as a ligature ‘ff’. On my system, however, any two
consecutive lowercase ‘f’ characters renders as a blank. The actual
Unicode character U+FB00 appears correctly.

I know absolutely nothing about font file formats, but the attached
patch disables the ligature replacement and solves the issue for me.
