TSCu_Paranar is not stripped; problem is that freefont contains some glyphs
in the U0b80-U0bff range and somehow has priority over Tamil fonts.
Here how Tamil looks like using TSCu_Paranar.


I'm about to file a bug agains greefont.
Thanx for reporting the problem.

AFAICT this is the exact problem that I have observed in January
because freefont had higher priority than all other in the G-I
environment. I honestly don't think is a font issue, but a G-I issue.
