[XeTeX] Why do I get small caps/random font?

There are some problems regarding the naming in the LM OpenType fonts. 
Briefly speaking, most of the Windows non-OpenType names (Family name id 
1.3.1, Style name id 2.3.1) as well as the OS/2 fsSelection 
style-linking flags (Font is bold, font is italic) are wrong. For proper 
Windows style-linking, the Italic, Bold and Bold Italic styles should 
have the same Windows family name (id 1.3.1) as the Regular style. Only 
the styles outside of the "basic four" set should have different Windows 
family names.

I'll send a more detailed feedback to the LM developers.
