Kerning disabling example on Linux (LO 5.1.5)

As can be seen in the attached screenshot, disabling of kerning in the
character properties (context menu -> Character... -> Position tab) does not
actually disable it. It can be observed with "Te" in "Test" and "Ve" in
"Version" in the text.

Observed with 64-bit Lunux Mint 17.1 (based on Ubuntu 14.04.1 LTS), where the
additional fonts were installed by installing Ubuntu's
ttf-mscorefonts-installer, fonts-crosextra-carlito and fonts-crosextra-caladea
packages (manual installation triggering). LO as provided by its Ubuntu PPA:
Build ID: 1:5.1.5~rc2-0ubuntu1~trusty1
CPU Threads: 2; OS Version: Linux 3.13; UI Render: default; 
Locale: de-DE (en_GB.UTF-8); Calc: group

This does not seem to depend on the used font - tested with Carlito, Caladea,
Areal and Liberation Sans.

Reproducible with Writer, Impress, Draw and Calc. Whereby character kerning is
disabled by default in the latter and that's where it becomes visible.

==> The issue leads to different Calc text display on Linux and Windows with
default character configuration.

On Windows, the situation is a bit different:
- LO 5.2.1 on Vista: Kerning disabling works for all fonts, while its enabling
doesn't work for Carlito and Caladea, which is a different issue - see bug
- LO 5.0.5 on Vista (tested as portable release on machine with LO 5.2.1
installed): The current Linux issue existed here as well.
