I've had an issue with similar result (whitespace not displayed at all)
at work with IntelliJ IDEA, see:


I haven't changed anything when that issue appeared although it is
possible that some font related package was upgraded.  (Currently I use
gtk3 3.24.13, cairo 1.17.2, harfbuzz 2.6.4.)  Nevertheless, the issue
persisted restarts of IDEA.  Only after I've deleted some IDEA-generated
project file (which actually has nothing to do with fonts at all) and
restarted, the issue disappeared.

On IRC I've read someone speaking about a similar issue before.

Long story short: it might be some issue with some underlying lib
because the issue has been observed in multiple programs.
