I'm now back to very suspicious about OOo itself. Both fontforge and ttx are
preferring the type 2 coverage format when saving this font as its more compact
in this case that the original fonts type 1 coverage table. Presuming that both
ttx and fontforge are re-encoding as type 2 correctly then it would be OOo
that's handling them incorrectly.

http://www.microsoft.com/typography/otspec/CHAPTER2.htm has "Coverage Index
(GlyphID) = StartCoverageIndex + GlyphID - Start GlyphID" which *plausibly* is
somewhere we're going wrong.
