How it looks like currently.
This is really similar to bug 78444, once again requires the Zapfino font.
Steps to reproduce:
- open a new document
- set font to Zapfino
- press "j"
Notice that part of the letter is missing. As usual, clicking on the header area works around the missing repaint.

Awesome fixes, thank you very much! This problem bugged me for years. (A libre font to reproduce these problems is Libre Baskerville Italic, BTW.)
Thanks for the free alternative hint, I felt bad about mentioning a commercial font for the description, but couldn't quickly find a free one. :-)
