(Gosh, this bug is opened for almost 10 years!) I use Windows 7, the font is DejaVu Sans 10pt, the letters are U+0401 and U+0451, the year is 2016. And what i see is pain. Is there any way to fix it by myself (and send you a kind of pull request)? (299 bytes, image/png)

Cyrillic letters (at least U+0401, U+0451; excepting Serif - U+040e, U+0419, U+0439, U+045e) have these bug. It makes the instructed Dejavu fonts virtually unusable with truetype hinting enabled.

So this wasn't migrated or resolved. So what gives?

Why leave open bugs lying around?
