  Umlauts (diaresis) in small fonts of DejaVu Serif (Ubuntu Dapper)

Status in “ttf-dejavu” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  In small-sized fonts (font size <= 10) of the DejaVu Serif font, which
  appears to be the standard font for serif fonts in Ubuntu Dapper, the
  diaresis or trema is not centered above the respective character (a,
  u, or o). Misplacing becomes especially apparent for capitalized
  umlauts and o-umlauts in general.

  For DejaVu Sans however, diareses are centered correctly. Umlauts are
  also correctly centered if autohinter is chosen in fontconfig via
  "dpkg-reconfigure fontconfig".
