    I had similar problem with a font called Gandhari but I could install
    Gentium without any problem. I was testing those fonts for a linguist
    friend of mine who is a PC user and much to her chagrin, with Gentium
    it worked amazingly well and I was able to stack-up twelve
    diacritics, one above the other, on top of a letter! but Gandhari
    wouldn't install.
    Perhaps little detail is missing in the font which prevents OS to do
    the same with Gandhari, therefore wouldn't install.

    If you run it through validity test of Apple's own font tools on a
    Mac you might be able to find-out what is missing with your font.
    I fully understand why you are annoyed. But from what I can see,
    venturing Apple font tools is your best option.
