Grailrn is the name of this Minion-variant, I call it Minion, it was
modified for the hungarian typesetting, but I dislike its name.

The logfile (generated with \loggingall) shows all information about
boxes, kernings, fonts...

..\kern0.18999
../grailregular+25/m
..\discretionary
../grailregular+25/a
..\kern-0.1
../grailregular+25/-
..\kern0.0 (right margin)    <- Why 0.0pt?
..\glue(\rightskip) 0.0
.\penalty 100

Bad (or good) news, that I cannot send a minimal example. After killing
all of my macros and my output routine the problem is no more, exactly I
don't understand why (but the minimal example would be about 1MB
gzipped archive)? I think I should rewrite some macro to avoid this
error.
