Looks right to me.

I don't see any actual problems with the glyphs shown; at small sizes, the
spacing between glyphs often gets rounded in odd ways. I'd be interested
to know if you've got the byte code interpreter enabled; one of the main
improvements that can make is in spacing -- small sizes often have delta
hints that fix these rounding problems.
