I can't speak for the reporters, but I just did some detailed
comparisons between LilyPond's current output and the
images/descriptions from the bug reports, and the problem does appear

Attached are LilyPond's current renderings for the examples in the
bugreports.  (Of course, this is font dependent, but a couple of other
fonts for the Hebrew example looked fine too.)
