In Libertine Mono the ſ (long s) is too narrow. Hence there is a gap after every ſ that visually breaks the word into two. That’s not surprising since it seems to be plainly the same character as in regular Libertine. As long as there is no original Mono ſ, the one that is used now should be centred to prevent the gap from becoming so wide.

    I can agree. This bug is still present (version 5.3.0).
