As you yourself described, using that font is not "without problems":
some glyphs come out truncated.

It's an improvement if using Latin Modern Math produces results that
are unacceptable.  This bug report says loud and clear that the
results are indeed unacceptable.

Does such a fixed version exist?  I doubt that.  I see several fonts
whose names match ".* Math" which all have this problem.  So it sounds
like this was done on purpose, and the font designers will not fix
that.
