The FreeType version (ideally, the latest CVS source should be used to
test against), the font version, and, in case the ft2demo program
doesn't show immediately the problem, the keys to be pressed to unveil
the problem.

Well, the higher-level libraries like Pango, Qt, or ICU.  For example,
if you see kerning problems with OpenType fonts it's most likely *not*
a problem in FreeType.  Reason: Recent OpenType fonts have only GPOS
kerning which isn't handled by FreeType at all.
