Description of problem:
Pango's ligature detection is too keen (at least) with the Linux Libertine font.
It picks up things like fi, fl and ffi mid-word, but also spots roman numerals
and "No" as short for "number" when it's not appropriate.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start Pango-enabled app (e.g., Inkscape, Firefox).
2. Choose Linux Libertine font.
3. Find/type: difficult, UNIX, ASCII, Nobody.
Actual results:
See attached png (from Inkscape).

Expected results:
No ligature detection for UNIX, ASCII and Nobody.
