I don't know if this is related, but I've also noticed a strange case of kerning 
in the german abbreviation 'Vf.'

\font\1="Minion Pro" at 12pt
\1 Vf. Va 

Gives me too much negative kerning in 'Vf.', while the 'Va' is perfectly OK. 
Other application on my Mac behave as expected, so I think we can rule out a
problem with the font. Is my XeTeX broken?
