    I seem to remember this is an obsolete or deprecated form (someone to
    confirm the correct status?)
    You should really stick to Eric's advise (unless there is a real problem,
    see below), since the two forms do not mix well (that is, even if they look
    like the same, they are not the same, so they do not collate the same,
    searching for one do you find the other, etc.)

    Buggy font or engine (this problem have already been reported).
    Please complain to your font supplier if it is repeatable in various
    environments, or to your engine supplier (depends on the graphical OS you
    are using) if it does not show except on one environment.
