  Numbers rendered at different heights based on word

Status in ubuntu-font-family-sources package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using google-chrome-stable from Google's upstream repositories,
  numbers in the Ubuntu font are rendered strangely. When part of a
  word, they are rendered full-height (as I would expect) but when
  standalone (or part of a string of numbers), they are rendered at
  lower-case height. This is particularly noticeable when typing in to a
  text box that renders in Ubuntu, because already-typed numbers can
  change in height.

  To reproduce, visit http://font.ubuntu.com in Google Chrome and type
  the string "5". You will see a small 5. If you append "s" to the
  string (i.e. "5s") you will see the "5" change in height.

  I'm filing this bug against Ubuntu despite it being in an unpackaged
  browser because I've tested using exactly the same version of Chrome
  in wily and xenial (49.0.2623.75), and the behaviour only exhibits
  itself in xenial.
