I have version 5.01 of Lucida Sans Unicode, April 15, 1993; I’m not sure
whether the difference matters.

I tend to agree. Looking at U+05BE in Lucida Sans Unicode in the OTM Light
font inspector, I see ADW (advance width) as 0. This is of course a bug in
the font, and it causes the character to be overprinted on the preceding
character. When it is beth, you don’t really see it.
