Incorrect diacritic placement in text extraction

                 Key: PDFBOX-430
                 URL: https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/PDFBOX-430
             Project: PDFBox
          Issue Type: Bug
            Reporter: Brian Carrier

the characters in the chunk of text. With text extraction, the current design does not allow
the diacritic to be placed over a character in the chunk and instead it is placed after the

The debug-diac2.pdf file in PDFBOX-429 shows this problem.
