The attached .odt file, when converted to pdf, as a strange problem: Certain areas of text can not be copy-and-pasted correctly. The copied text is silently corrupted, causing certain characters to be dropped or duplicated. Very strange.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open attached "bug.odt" and do File->Export to PDF
(or open the attached .pdf)
2. Open the .pdf file. Select the string "firstname.lastname@example.org" with the mouse, and then Control-C to copy.
3. Put cursor in a terminal (e.g. gnome-terminal) window. Control-Shift-V to paste.
Something else is pasted (a corrupted version of the text).
What is displayed should be copied.
User Profile Reset: No
NOTE: In real life, the problem arises in files which have been modified by non-LO software (The ODF::lpOD perl library), and seemingly only in tables. I have not been able to reproduce it with text entered manually. The attached demo file is a cut-down copy of a user directory generated from a database using a software tool.

Appears to be a REGRESSION.
The problem does NOT occur with version 126.96.36.199.0+
Build ID: 72a7b8d08649ecea2b749d72c660d0d9ecf05abd
...but DOES occur with version Version: 188.8.131.52
Build ID: 1:5.4.5-0ubuntu0.17.10.4
and all later versions I tried.
Further narrowed it down: 184.108.40.206 fails, but 220.127.116.11 works.
I guess it's a ligature issue and dupe of Bug 66597 like other duplicates with Calibri and Carlito fonts.

So what changed in 18.104.22.168 to make this problem appear?
The exact same .odt does not create wrong PDF in 5.3.x
Bug 66597 is becoming a kind of meta bugs with different issues lumped together, lets separate different issues.

Confirming that this one is fixed in latest master.
