It would still be helpful to see a test file, to understand the problem being reported.

The inconsistency is aesthetically objectionable, and will be addressed.

Pointed out by Tae Wong on freefont-bugs list June 21 '13

New glyphs are unixxxx while other glyphs are uniXXXX.

For example, in FreeSerif Regular, the glyph 0x1D29 is named uni1d29 and not uni1D29.

This is because the maintainer created some glyphs that use the
unixxxx part. SC UniPad is not updated and does not use Unicode 6.0.
