I found this out while testing a fix I'm working on for various font problems in

The ø character ( compose o / ) in urw-fonts "nimbus sans l condensed" is wrong
at size 20, there I get an r with an inverted ^ above it.

One way to reproduce:
-start xfig (version 3.2.5-5, will hit rawhide / updates-testing soon).
-Click on the T icon to start editing text
-Left click somewhere in the canvas
-Type compose o /
-Middle click to indicate your done entering text
-CTRL + e
-left click the ø
-select helvetica narrow, xfig maps this to:
 -urw-nimbus sans l condensed-medium-r-condensed--
-click apply, things should still be fine
-change size to 20
-click apply, wrong character gets shown.
