Hi Bernhart,

As you see, I moved the discussion to lyx-devel, please try to keep it 
here and I'll try to keep you in Cc:.

Unfortunately, it is not my failing memory that prevented from fixing 
the bug. Since I cannot reproduce it, it is difficult for me to do 
something about it.

Let's start by a shot in the dark: does it make a difference to set the 
environment variable QT_HARFBUZZ to "old" ?

Even if it does, I suspect it will not be enough for a long-term fix.

Did I understand correctly that you can compile LyX? Does it mean that 
you can try a patch too? A possibility is that Qt does not like (ass 
Pavel noted) to have a font with a character at position 1 (which is 
where \int lives in esint10 font). We would have to duplicate the 
character somewhere else in the font.
