No, for sure not.  This problem is in no way related to Debian - it's
either a general LaTeX problem (if Ralf is right with "(almost) always")
or an lmodern problem, and should be documented at the right places.  I
won't clutter README.Debian with lots of things that don't belong

And wherever you document it, please us a specific wording.  "a bunch of
font related issues" means approximately nothing, please say whether
there are errors, or warnings, or wrongly displayed characters, and in
what cases this occurs.
