It is, however, merely a symptom of a larger problem that's been discussed
before. There are other fonts that contain high quality versions of glyphs
for their intended language, and then low quality glyphs for other languages
for the purpose of broader coverage. Automatically excluding the "bad" glyphs
in favor of superior ones from another font requires fairly specific
configuration, from what I've seen.
