The `missing glyphs' are glyph variants.  Usually, glyph X is, say,
the Japanese variant, while X+1 is the Taiwanese one, etc., etc.

And thanks for the bug report!  Alas, as you correctly state, it is
very unlikely to be fixed soon – and being part in a new release.

Maybe the bug can be circumvented by adjusting the .pe script so that
it temporarily removes all glyphs that don't have a cmap mapping?  I
haven't the fontforge docs whether this is possible...
