Summary: fop misrenders U+002D when using Type 1 fonts
I have a document that uses U+002D in a variety of situations, including the
phrase "troff -mx". Obviously, the U+002D should be flush against the "m".
However, when using fop with Nimbus Roman No9 L (the Type 1 Times equivalent
from gsfonts) or URW Palladio L (the Type 1 Palatino equivalent), there is a
significant gap after the U+002D. This occurs whether the font is bold or not.
Hyphenation is also not relevant.
The problem occurs in 1.0 (and trunk) but does not occur in 0.95. I've used
the Apache git bridge to bisect the problem. For git, the problematic commit
is 3b4af07609eb6f091ca110d99ba1f63b828222e1; for svn, it is 910445 (at least
according to the information the bridge included).
There are testcases and examples of the misrendering attached to Debian bug
610344 (http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=610344). Since Nimbus
Roman No9 L is generally the default font for Times on many Linux boxes, this
misrendering will likely affect a significant number of users on Linux
