The left parenthesis seems to be a tiny bit shorter
than the right one. And the superscript is not fully
enclosed, as it is when 10pt is used, or with LuaLaTeX
as the engine.

Note that:  unicode-math.sty    2010/10/26 v0.5b 
is actually  v0.5c  --- there's a typo in the package.
(The real v0.5b has an earlier date.)
