[Pkg-fonts-devel] Bug#912282: fonts-cantarell: U+0335 to U+0338 do not visually combine with the previous glyph

Package: fonts-cantarell
Version: 0.111-2
Severity: normal

In Gtk3 applications such as gucharmap, combining characters U+0335 to U+0338
do not visually combine to the previous character.
Because of this, since they have null width, they visually combine with the
*next* character.

E.g., “a̸” should show as a with a “long solidus” (U+0338) overlayed, but this
is overlayed to the next character instead.

This does not occur with other fonts such as those of the DejaVu family.
