I have tried test.tex, which was an attachment of this thread, with
Adobe Myungjo Std in various font sizes.  The most striking problem is
that the y_offset value of U+3008 (its vertical variant, of course) is
not proportionate to the font size.  It is bigger than normal in small
font size; small when font size is large.  Only when the font size is
same as the design size of Adobe Myungjo (that is 15.625pt), the
result seems to be correct.  You can see the y_offset value if xetex
is compiled with debug mode on.  I guess that there is some bug in
harfbuzz or freetype or other library.  I have tested on Mac, so this
problem may not occur under other platforms.
