1. New Writer document
2. Open the Special Character dialog
3. font should default to Liberation Serif
4. click/place the capital "X"
5. change font from drop list, Caldea for example
6. chart grid redraws, but the "X" glyph is misplaced (and seems off size)
7. selecting other glyphs from the grid does not clear the misplaced/sized "X"

On Windows 10 Pro 64-bit en-US first noted with

So in the range

But nothing jumps out at me as work affecting the SvxCharacterMap, last refactored for the Weld work.

tdf#113643 Editing tables in Impress lags terribly

clear it when we change the font selected into the DC.
