The test is pretty obvious, it lays out the text and the checks the
returned character widths.

If the test is failing then either 1) your version of HarfBuzz is
returning different glyph advances which would almost certainly be a bug
in HarfBuzz, or 2) your version of DejaVu Sans have different glyph
advances but that is unlikely, or 3) VCL ended up selecting a different
font other than the one we requested for whatever reason, or 4)
something else fishy is going on in VCL.
