This is caused by the wrong spline direction, which makes synthetic glyph emboldening becomes shrinking instead. You can notice this by using an extremely large point size, like 72pt. The diacritics are still there, at very very small size.

This has been addressed upstream in version 0.4.13:


(But the real faces for Purisa have also been added to gain some adjustment possibility, anyway.)

Please sync the new package from Debian unstable to close this bug. Thanks.
