I think it may be accidental that okular et al. display the font
correctly. I ran a ConTeXt-generated pdf through pdftk to make it
recognizable to fontforge, and when I extracted the font it had
2048001 units per em instead of 2048.

(Also, the font extracted from a pdf made by my software was extracted
by fontforge according to its name without the subset prefix, but the
font extracted from ConTeXt output had the subset prefix. I suppose
that's probably a harmless difference due to the vagueness of the PDF
