Hi, Peter,

Sorry for annoying citing (I was not sure how to post to the same
thread rather then to start a new one, so i replied to my own messafe)
and whitespace.

I compiled the same source with 2 instances of xelatex, the one from
texlive 2010 works not as i expected (wrong kerning in small caps `та'
and in normalfont `тт').  Here is the source:


\textsc{та} оттого
