Latest commit should fix the problem for serif faces. Sans to follow later.

This bug still exists in FreeSans and FreeSans Bold.

The ends of the headstroke don’t look good in FreeSerif. They are cut off vertically, whereas the headstroke of letters like ⟨क⟩ has sloping ends.

It is good in FreeMono.

Fix in SVN.
I can't find any usage notes on this character. How do you know how it is meant to be used?

U+A8FB DEVANAGARI HEADSTROKE should look like the headstroke of other Devanagari letters, but in FreeSans and FreeSerif, regular and bold, it is higher and thinner.

U+A8FB should not join adjacent headstrokes, either of normal letters or other U+A8FBs, but in those fonts the gap is so small that it cannot be seen at normal font sizes. The gap should be more obvious.
