It took an excessively long time, but this is now fixed in FreeType's git repository.

Note, however, that the applied patch can't do wonders; at smaller sizes, the exclamation mark still loses the gap between the dot and the stroke.

I can confirm that. Unfortunately, I can't fix it, at least
not in the near future. Maybe David has some time to look at
it.

Sure.

$ xdpyinfo|grep dots

URL of the font, please.

Which dpi value are you using? `Size 11pt' is meaningless
without it.

Please see the attached screenshots -- only glyphs of sizes > 11 are correctly rendered.

(I prefer not using bytecode interpreter.)
