Semicolon overstriking soft hyphen in InDesign CS5.5 ME

I'm experiencing a weird problem with a client project. I'm setting a book in New Caledonia LT Std version 1.040 using InDesign CS5.5 ME. In one line, InDesign is hyphenating the word "Littérature" between the "t"s. It looks fine on screen, but when I PDF it, a semicolon overstrikes the hyphen. The hyphen prints correctly out of InDesign. When I change the font to the Type 1 version of New Caledonia, it PDFs and prints correctly.

My best guess is that it's a problem with the font, but I don't know. It's only happening in this one case right now, but in an earlier draft of the pages, it happened elsewhere.

Has anyone experienced this? Got any thoughts on what might be causing it?

I don't know if there's a way to debug the font, but does anyone know if Adobe would supply the updated version of the font if it's a bug in the old version?
