Nothing. It is a bug, due to the space in the font name.

Until the bug is repaired you can remove the space from the font
name (GentiumBasic), or you can use \textit instead of \textsl. This
will give the same result anyway as long as you don't use the
SlantedFont-option to declare a specific slanted font.
