Incorrect application of color to ligatures

example of broken ligature coloring
When I try to apply a different color to a text selection that is connected to another letter via a ligature from left border, the character before selection gets recolored too.
See attached image for a sample, where instead of two selected characters three get recolored.
It does not happen with all ligatures though, as far as I can see.
The font in question is here:
I have a suspicion that newly filed https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=648155 has something to do with it, but it's not my job to decide :)
This is the markup:
<markup><span font=\"Lobster 1.4,\">simple e<span foreground="#00aeff">xa</span>mple</span></markup>
So clearly no a GIMP problem.
And not my job to decide either :) -> pango
Completely unescaped markup:
<markup><span font="Lobster 1.4,">simple e<span foreground="#00aeff">xa</span>mple</span></markup>
I think I kinda found a solution for this. For multi-color ligatures we can use a cairo gradient with sharp transition to do multi-color without having to fall back to clipping.
It was clearly a mistake on my part to report this as a bug. Ligatures are ligatures.
Actually no, this *is* a bug.
