Ah! I ran an existing otfinfo, which is why it didn't look right;  
just downloaded a new version and the info looks better. :) Sorry, I  
hadn't properly understood the change -- that existing Adobe fonts  
were actually wrong according to the spec.

I've modified XeTeX (rev. 368) so that it handles both "broken" and  
"corrected" versions of the table, and it now finds the proper  
optical sizes for existing Adobe fonts like Warnock Pro and also for  
your new MnSymbol. So this will be fixed in the next release.

Thanks for the info!
