Could you also speak to the reproducibility case here? I'm afaid I
let this thread get slightly ahead of me and — as I previously
mentioned — I'm a little uncertain of the nitty-gritty font and
caching minutiæ.

However, I'm very keen to resolve the reproducibility issues so
please do let me know how I can help.

Best wishes,
