See comment at bug 39474.
I think this resolves at least part of this issue.

Thanks for pointing this out, and sorry for the terrible delay in fixing it!

Well, until I understand the nature of that other bug, I shouldn't make a judgment. But that is likely to take some time.

Yes, in XeLaTeX flaws are less evident to nonexistent while in LO they're clearly visible, obviously LO handles things differently than XeLaTeX

Are you sure this something different from the kern-doubling bug?
Does it look different from the same text as rendered with latex?

As you can see, Serbian localised glyphs are badly kerned, they tend to "move" too much to the right, thus almost colliding with the next character. Especially TE and PE.

Another issue is that if one selects "Ancient Greek" instead of "Greek", the glyphs stay in the "maths mode".
