Yeah, Speaking about lohit-malayalam
since it work well with all other rendering engine like, pango, qt and ICU.

I think there is some problem processing its open type feature by
present m17n rendering engine.
Is it latest one?
I think its work well with Meera font since, Meera font has lots of
ligature defined, and most of the shape get form it very early stage of
open type feature processing by rendering engine.

though i have not tested much i think this is the case. I will do some
more testing with other fonts may be on monday and will let you know
exact case.
