Summary: Liberation Mono: incorrect spacing for Combining

According to the bug on freedesktop.org
(link below), Liberation Mono has an
incorrect spacing definition for "Combining Diacritical Marks"; they should
have zero space, and should render above the last letter, not the next one.
Paste following text with selected font:
Correct: accent above o
Incorrect: accent above g
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enter a string with a combining diacritic mark in Liberation Mono, e.g.,
"o̍g". Don't use gnome-terminal; it relies on vte, which doesn't
combining characters. Use something like gedit; switching fonts will reveal the
issue as the diacritical mark switches places.
The diacritic appears one letter to the right of where it should be.
The diacritic should appear in the proper place.
I'm using ttf-liberation 1.04.93-1 on Ubuntu Intrepid; I'm filing this as an
upstream bug. If this should be filed elsewhere, please let me know.
I'm filing this because several monospace fonts have incorrect spacing for
"Combining Diacritical Marks":
