When running Font2DTest, select Dialog (or DejaVu Sans) font, select Range of Latin Extended-A, a lot of glyphs land at edge of grids.
Problem happens because of the incomplete USE_MY_METRICS support.
This flag indicates that metrics of current component should be used as metrics of
composite glyph. Unfortunatelly, at the moment we only correctly do this for
first component. If flag is used on non-first component we end up using
non initialized values to calculate advance.
Problem was there for long time. It is unclear why we never faced it before.
The glyphs I see are rendered OK but there's something off with the advances.
The values coming back from the rasteriser look very odd. Text including those
glyphs will display with an extremely erratic baseline.
