Writer document, first line is with Font Liberation Serif, second line is with Suetterlin Font

Problem description: 
Downloading the font from http://www.myfont.de/fonts/infos/2683-Suetterlin.html and installing it is fine, one can choose it from the fonts selection but if it is selected, one only gets boxes when typing a text. The font is displayed correctly under abiword or gimp.

Steps to reproduce:
1. Download font from http://www.myfont.de/fonts/infos/2683-Suetterlin.html

2. Install it in the default font directory (I installed it under Linux in /usr/share/fonts/truetype

3. Open LibreOffice (bug also reproducible in OpenOffice) and select the new installed font.

4. Try to type some words and you'll only see boxes.

Current behavior:
see 4.: Only boxes are printed on the screen

Expected behavior:
print characters typed in Font Suetterlin

Platform (if different from the browser): platform-independent (tested under Linux and Windows with OpenOffice and LibreOffice)

This font is seriously broken. You can verify it by opening it in the FontForge and running check on it.
If you want to use it anyway, you will need to remap glyphs to proper positions.
