Indic glyphs are misalign to some roman glyphs

Description of problem:
Indic glyphs are misalign to some roman glyphs after indic have been
resized. Please see the attachment for the sample. It seems related to
either freetype, pango, or the font. Let me know if I have submit the

Moving to FC5Target, as FC4 is 'done', barring release blockers that
I have compared some Indic strings with English and Chinese strings, it seems
that English and Chinese are rendered aligned to the middle, but Indic string
aligned to the top in pango.
I am not sure if this is desired Indic behavior, but this is a what pango does.
Any indic native speaker could confirm this?
Can you guys file this upstream and post the bug to this report? thanks.
Lawrence has submitted this: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=327163
this is upstreamde now.
The problem we are seeing here is simply that the indic and latin fonts which
are used have wildly different ascent/descent. GTK+ does not do any kind of
baseline alignment in situations like this, so text will only line up if the
ascent/descent of all involved fonts are relatively similar
Not fixable in fc5 timeframe.
REOPENED status has been deprecated. ASSIGNED with keyword of Reopened is preferred.
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.
If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)
Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.
The process we're following is outlined here:
We will be following the process here:

doesn't happen again.
Rahul, could you take a look if this is still a problem?
The upstream bug is still open at least.
This was a problem with the auto-hinting done by freetype. Now that problem has
been solved since freetype-2.3.5. So this bug does not exists any more.We may
safely close this one.
Thanks for letting us know.
