According to the Wikipedia article on Lucida Sans Unicode, there are a 
couple of other well known bugs.  U+0332 and U+0333 both have display 
issues.  (V̲ V̳)

Apparently there have been no updates for this popular font since 1993, 
so Doug seems correct about the unlikelihood of these issues being 
addressed.  Of course, stranger things have happened...
