I see. I did a quick look and comparison with FontBook on my Mac. They are definitely different.
I am not even sure that the patched font from the Forum is encoded the same way as the sample
shows different characters.

From the thread it looks like the patched font has misplaced the Greek Letters. Let me see
if I can provide a version 2.5 of OpenSymbol that can find the updated square root and brackets
while preserving the encoding.

I’ve used FontForge to play with Fonts, but I cannot get it to work on my current macOS.
I do have a version of 10.7 which I will try later this week.

Regards,
Dave
