There have been changes indeed. I have just tested this with

$ otfinfo -v MinionPro-*.otf
MinionPro-BoldIt.otf:Version 2.015;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.7.9032
MinionPro-Bold.otf:Version 2.015;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.7.9032
MinionPro-It.otf:Version 2.015;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.7.9032
MinionPro-Regular.otf:Version 2.015;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.7.9032

as well as

$ otfinfo -v MinionPro-*.otf
MinionPro-BoldIt.otf:Version 2.012;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.6.6565
MinionPro-Bold.otf:Version 2.012;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.6.6565
MinionPro-It.otf:Version 2.012;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.6.6565
MinionPro-Regular.otf:Version 2.012;PS 002.000;Core 1.0.38;makeotf.lib1.6.6565

The former came with my AR 7.0.8 installation. The latter came with some
previous version. None of them shows such problems here, though. Would
be interesting to know which version Peter got from AR.
