Hi Chris

thanks for confirming, but i had this problem on my laptop and desktop
and workstation, so it's not just happening on one machine.

Also, Robby and i found this bug which is similar to my sympthoms

just to make sure. Did you upgrade to the latest current with harfbuzz
1.1.3? It seems that's the culprit since Robby tried to downgrade to
1.1.2 and it worked nicely
