Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

Actual results:

Expected results:
Normal shape is expected.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Sergei Stolyarov 2009-01-24 14:27:50 EST
The font is Libertion Sans.
Comment 2 Caius Chance 2009-01-28 02:35:57 EST

has hinting instructions within U+0431.

afaik, only hinting is affected by hinting instructions.

Which software have you used to generate screenshot?
Comment 3 Sergei Stolyarov 2009-01-28 14:58:14 EST
I used gimp 2.6.3 from Debian. But this symbol looks blurry in all programms.

Afaik hints should be rewritten if glyph's shape changed. At least fontforge shows message this when changing any glyph with hints that hints will be removed.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.

Just checked version liberation-fonts-ttf-, everything is looking fine.
