zordsdavini: thank you for finding this. There appear to be precombined codepoints for Ǡǡ Ȱȱ, but for Ė̄ė̄ these are coded as U+0117; U+0304 (e with dot above; combining macron), which appears to be missing at the moment so a substituted version is getting used which is then not stacking correctly with the existing diacritical already on top of the Ėė in standard Lithuanian.

Although as a point of note, the only claimed Panagram I found in the wild is actually mis-encoded with a horizontal combining bar (U+0305): "Cha, mona bluogė̅jė vākalē bazaunīdamė sogalvuojė tik kūlīnūs grōžto falšīvē pamačītė ciuocē."

Paul Sladen: as I understand, you found this panagram in bat-smg.wikipedia.org. In this project "ė̄" was made with combining bar (U+0305) at first but later it was decided to use combining macron. You can look at first page: "Svēkė atvīkė̄ i Vikipedėjė žemaitiu kalbuo" and "Vielībė̄jė pakeitėmā". In editing page is sugested with cobining macron, too. All key layouts use macron, too.
