The "lš" kerning issue was just a badly wrong entry in one table.  I wonder how these things happen.  Fixed in serif roman.

I did not see the problem in italic.  See attached.

I see a bad over-kerning of "lš".  Not sure what is causing it, probably the pair occurs in two tables.

The case of "ſt" is different.  The question here is, should a ligature be made?  This depends on a lot of things, so it is left to the typesetter to turn the ligature on directly.  It is implemented in FreeFont as a "Historical Ligature", and can be enabled as described in the documentation.
