[XeTeX] Ancient Hebrew font problem

I am facing a problems with hebrew vowels while trying three different
fonts (see example file):

With SBL Hebrew and Ezra SIL, the vowels are too much on the left under
the consonants.
Cardo seems ok, except for shureq (leftmost letter of the third and
fourth word from the left). The point is on the right hand side of the
Waw consonant instead of on the left.

System specs: Ubuntu Karmic, fontspec 2010/08/01 v2.0c,
XeTeXk, Version 3.141592-2.2-0.996-patch2 (Web2C 7.5.6)

What can I do to achieve the correct vowel adjustment? Does anyone have
experiences with fonts for Biblical Hebrew?
