It has. But I didn't see previously the error message ("** ERROR **
Invalid glyph index (gid 1329)") in this context and the only
"proof" for the claim that the source of the problem is the \=y is a
log-file of a 70 page document. 

Without a small complete ("minimal") example it is impossible to
investigate in a sensible way.
