Bug Description

In Ubuntu Mono, an equation sign next to a greaster-than sign looks stranage but acceptable. In Ubuntu Mono Bold, they look terrible (see attached screenshot).

This is the sequence I am talking about: =>

Proposed solution:
  1. Add an entry to the CVT
  1. Ensure -=><+{} all use the entry from the CVT for their centreline

Thanks for the screenshot Robert. Please could you take it again after copying and pasting in the two magic debugging characters '' and ''. These give information about the version number and the hinting engine state.

Okay. I created a screenshot of different rendering sizes for the font. The problem seems to appear between sizes 17 and 18.
