If felt adventurous and I found the following problem:

%%%% minimal example %%%%

\item one
\item two
%%%% end %%%%

It fails because itemize seems to require some math characters (the
bullets) and the libertine font seems not to have them. lmodern don't
kick in, it just fails:

! Math error: parameter \Umathquad\displaystyle is not set.
\mathematics ...rmalstartimath #1\normalstopimath 
\dodosymbol ...bol \csname \??ss :#1:#2\endcsname 
                                                  \relax }\relax 
\donormalsymbol ...bol \redosymbol \currentsymbol 
                                                  \fi \fi

Bests and thanks for all your work
