This gets sort of ridiculous, as *ignoring* the italic correction is not
good enough, it has to be explicitly substracted from the glyph width
(at least that is the case for the integrals with subscripts so I
assume that that will apply here as well).  Why on earth would someone
design a font in this manner ?!

Anyway, a small test file would be helpful, as it should not be hard
to do. Can you create a tracker?

Best wishes,
