[FIXED] A pair kerning bug when test the font in OpenType applications

Hello,
I've created a font with 12 swashes that can be placed at the end of a word. I've installed my font and tested it with Illustrator and Photoshop. Everything works perfect, except one swash. The kerning for this glyph (swash) is wrong when it is paired with any other glyph (character).

It is really weird because any other kerning pair between characters or a character and a swash works perfect, except this swash, which, by the way, seems fine with FontCreator.

I've also attempted to change the kerning values to -1 or +1, but the result, in Illustrator, remained the same.
Thank you in advance

Can you send the font project to us, so we can look into this issue?

Hello Erwin,
Is there an email address where I can send you the font? I wouldn't want to make it public.
Thank you

The font looks just fine to me. I've also tested it through FontCreator's font test dialogs. It works great, so I don't get it. Maybe you accidentally set tracking between the characters. I can't come up with anything else.
