Screenshot of the cent glyph as displayed in OpenOffice.

Description of problem:
The character 'cent' (¢) has been modified in Liberation Mono and Liberation
Sans without regenerating hints, as has already been discussed in bug 474522.

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

How reproducible:
Consistently, as long as bytecode hinting has been turned on.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Use a version of Freetype with bytecode hinting enabled.
2. Make sure that hinting is set to 'full' in your window manager's appearance
3. Enter the character ¢ (U+00A2) in an application such as OpenOffice.
4. Set the font to Liberation Sans Italic or Liberation Mono Italic.

Actual results:
The cent sign looks correct.

Expected results:
The cent sign is warped beyond recognition.
