OK. Since this bug was reported, TeX Gyre have made many core fonts available as
good quality TTF, mitigating the problem.

The non-ligating of Type 1 fonts could be considered a feature, because there is
no way to turn it off for TTF/OTF in some applications (i.e. Eclipse). For
example, if a TTF/OTF version of Courier or DejaVu Sans Mono is used in Eclipse,
ligatures are honoured, and source code "file =" has ligation applied to the
"fi", converting it to a single symbol. This is Not What The User Wanted. The
workaround is to select the Type 1 version (e.g. Bitstream Vera Sans Mono).
