The "partially solved" is waiting for your confirmation (or not). I  
gave you the patch.

I quote comment #12 from 2007-02-08:

     If not fixed, I'll also need some help getting a reproducer  
together.

I have also asked (repeatedly) whether the problem still exists. no  
clue.

I did insure that CY aligns correctly, Welsh UTF8 with wide  
characters, many

What is the copyright issue? Claiming "claimed about this" helps  
nothing.
