« Every windows application that relies on the GDI call GetKerningPairs() will
fail with these problematic 
fonts. On the other hand the font's kern table is valid and OOo is right that
it trusts GDI to provide the 
kerning pairs. There are four ways to fix it:
1. fix Windows so that GetKerningPairs() ignores pairs it cannot handle
2. remove the problematic kernings from the DejaVu Serif fonts
3. make sure that every glyph mentioned in the kern table has a (proper or
dummy) unicode inside the 
4. make OOo and all other Windows applications avoid GDI calls and parse all
font tables themselves »
