Given :
1. that the DejaVu founder (Štěpán Roh) *is* Czech
2. some major DejaVu contributors use KDE
3. none of the other distros which use DejaVu (in full of LGC form) report
this problem (and it is taking a beating in FC6 tests at least)

... I seriously doubt the bug is in DejaVu (but probably in mandriva's
KDE/QT stack)

The lack of any thorough investigation in the mandriva bug is
disappointing to say the least. If you actually believe the problem is in
the font you could at least contact the dejaVu team (next release is in
two days)
