example of different display of abs{x} in 5.2.5 vs. 5.3

Before version 5.3, the equation editor always worked fine for me. With 5.3, however, it seems any formula containing abs{x} (and possibly other expressions) is displayed incorrectly. From what I see, it would appear that only the upper parts of the vertical lines are drawn, or that the lines have moved up. Saving a file with an equation containing abs{x} in 5.3 and then opening the file in an earlier version results in the exact same incorrect representation. However, opening the equation with abs{x} with the equation editor of the earlier version fixes the problem. Likewise, a file with abs{x} created  in an earlier version of LO displays correctly in 5.3 until the equation with abs{x} is opened with the equation editor of version 5.3, after which abs{x} is displayed incorrectly again.

Probably a harfbuzz/coretext problem specific to MacOS like the other mispositioned character bug reports.

Should be already fixed in master and 5.3.1, please reopen if it is not the case.
