The lookups in the font are in the wrong order.

Altogether, the Junicode font is full of bugs and mistakes, both in 
technical terms and design-wise. It includes obviously buggy feature 
names ("liag", " RQD"), the order of lookups is quite bad. The glyph 
design for some glyphs (e.g. Aogonek, Eogonek, eogonek, Lcaron, Ldot, 
ldot, Lslash, lslash) is horribly wrong.
