I don't get any problems with ø, or with the fi ligature.  Could this be a
ghostscript problem you're experiencing?  The pdfwriter in the 7.x series
of ghostscript is broken - fi and fl ligatures come out with incorrect
metrics, sometimes overwriting the next character, sometimes leaving a
large gap.  For all I know, this may be the case with ø as well.  (Sorry,
can't test it, as gs 7.x has been eradicated from my machine...).
