Certainly not; while it does /look/ like a precision issue, throwing 
higher precision at it when we don't know what's really going on there 
would only guarantee that font rendering would be significantly slowed 
down. Even if it does solve the problem, I don't think we want to do 
that just because two individual glyphs in a single font that gives us 
issues.

As a matter of fact, with the Demo version of this font I do see issues 
even in Microsoft Word (albeit with other characters), indicating that 
the font is of questionable quality despite its price tag.
