And, here's another weird example.

Open the attached TTF file, and you'll see 18 characters with "Outline Issues".

Save the font as a FontCreator project and close the project.

Now, open the project file you just saved. The "Outline Issues" are gone.

The same thing happens if you save the original file as an OTF/TTF file and then open the newly saved file. So, FontCreator is doing something to "fix" the outline issues when the file is saved, but I'd still really like to know what, exactly, the "issues" are in the first place.
Thank you for letting us know!

These are inadvertently reported issues. This bug will be fixed with the next upcoming release.

So, will "real" outline issues be dealt with as well? Because there are some fonts where saving and loading again does not change the reported "issues", but there is still no indicator what, exactly, the problems might be.
