Spoke too soon. The "zero.slashed" is selected, instead of 
"zero.lf.slashed",
so that the zero is smaller than the rest of the lining figure numbers. 
In
desperation, tried luatex with 'luaotfload.sty' under TeXLive2013, and 
it
worked fine. `;color=XXXXXX` also works with `luaotfload`, but not with
LuaTeX-plain from ConTeXt.

Any ideas would be welcome. Exhausted Google query permutations and most
font info if for LaTeX, pdfTeX, pdfLaTeX, LuaLaTeX or ConTeXt.

Can I maybe as a hack switch the glyphs, or something?

Thanks again & regards,
Aíre.
