Actually here on Mac OS X with Java VM 1.4.2 I have these Lucida Sans 
fonts installed:

Lucida Sans Demibold            30 October 2001; 1.21 (JAVA)
Lucida Sans Demibold Oblique    September 18, 1998; 1.00 (JAVA)
Lucida Sans Oblique             September 20, 1998; 1.00 (JAVA)
Lucida Sans Regular             Version 1.20 - October 2000

It seems that ff in Lucida Sans Oblique fell off the desktop or was 
blown away and the remainders slid down ...

If I can't find a correct version in an earlier version that'll be a 
nice training programme to fix this with fontinst for TeX. To fix it on 
disk probably is forbidden ...

Thanks for this!
