Hi JLuc,

This is the way Scribus shows me the glyphs for that typography -also it 
happens with all other types that has alternate stylistics or (as 
FontMatrix put them) «unmapped glyphs»-


I can't remember if previous version does that, but i think not so i 
guess i'll go back -i need to finish a job for thursday-.
