This is Pango.

I believe this is #97545:

Because UTR #29 has this rule for word breaking:
  Don't break within sequences of digits, or digits adjacent to letters.
    Numeric x  Numeric
    Letter  x  Numeric
    Numeric x  Letter

(Ah, memories!  I filed that bug 14 months ago.  I'm not complaining,
but every so often I remember it...)
