[Interest] Problem with overlapping characters using the Hiragino OpenType font

  We have an application using Qt 4.6.2 on Embedded Linux (so QWS).
  Our client has requested that the Japanese version of our app use
  the Hiragino font.


  But we've seen that several (many? most?) of the CJK punctuation
  characters (Unicode code points 0x3000 through 0x303F) are displayed
  overlapping the next character. (Typographically, it looks like the left
  and right bearings of the characters are very wrong.)

  The problem does not appear if we use the Sazanami FOSS font, but
  that font has a very wide side bearing on all of the CJK punctuation
  marks so perhaps the problem is hidden in that way? (Plus, our
  client has deemed Sazanami "ugly".)

  Has anyone seen anything like this before? Rendered on a Windows 7
  system using Microsoft's system, graphics layers, and applications, the
  exact same Hiragino font looks fine.
