           Summary: diacritics below are cut-off
           Product: DejaVu
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: PC
               URL: http://sourceforge.net/mailarchive/forum.php?thread_id=3
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: General
        AssignedTo: dejavu-bugs at lists.freedesktop.org

Some diacritics end up with some parts below the descender limit, thus being
cut-off on Windows. This is rather bad. Ring below turns into a half ring below,
square below turns into half square below, combing tack..., combining plus, etc.

All those should have their shape preserved when combined with base characters
without descenders.

Possible solutions:
* expand the descender limit, thus messing up the whole font metrics (bad)
* shift and shrink the diacritics when necessary (solves it but can be
unpleasant, might not look good)
