Very old bug, unfortunately not publicly visible I think because
our bugzilla was not yet public at that time. I have moved
the bug to openSUSE 11.2 Alpha0 and hope it is visible now:


As you can see in the bug report, the submitter of this patch, Zhe Su
couldn't tell me either what this patch does.  Apparently it had
something to do with the commercial Japanese Dynafont font series,
therefore I tried to get hold of these fonts and do some testing and
found that weird glyphs at completely wrong positions were displayed
without this patch. The patch seemed to have no effect whatsoever on
other fonts.

I’ll try now if the situation is still the same and the wrong
glyphs reappear if I disable the patch.
