I've noticed an interesting difference in how we hyphenate words compared to Firefox.

E.g. some examples from https://blogs.gnome.org/mclasen/2016/04/15/my-first-xdg-app/

Firefox: environ-ment
WebKit: enviro-nment

Firefox: hav-ing
WebKit: ha-ving

Firefox: run-time
WebKit: ru-ntime

Firefox: com-mand
WebKit: co-mmand

Firefox's hyphenations are clearly superior. This looks pretty suspicious; could we have an off-by-one in our code?
