The mininimal working example is the following one:

\setmainfont[Numbers=OldStyle]{Linux Libertine O}

The 6 in italic and bold is like a 0. I wrote a report of bug on http://sourceforge.net/p/linuxlibertine/bugs/190/. The problem should be solved but I installed a new version, and tried again: the problem is still here.

The only solution I see is that fontspec has a cache, but I don't see any information on the documentation file.

I run with xetex.

Which version of Linux Libertine do you actually have installed? –  Joseph Wright Sep 29 '13 at 8:24
You probably still have the old version installed and XeTeX is picking it, what OS you are running and how did you install the font? –  Khaled Hosny Sep 29 '13 at 9:09
I have installed the 5.3.0 version on sourceforge.net/projects/linuxlibertine/files/linuxlibertine/… –  Maïeul Sep 29 '13 at 9:20
It's quite possible that XeTeX is picking the font from a different location; the usual way to see this is to call xelatex --output-driver "xdvipdfmx -vv" <filename> that will show on the console the location of the used font files. –  egreg Sep 29 '13 at 9:47
I made your test : I have the good fileparth. –  Maïeul Sep 29 '13 at 10:05

Ok, with the help of french user of LaTeX and of the author of fontspec, I found the problem.

In fact, the bug was corrected on the *RBI variant but not in the *RZI which was loaded ...

This is mostly unhelpful, I'm afraid. –  egreg Nov 17 '13 at 11:03
Of course, it 's unhelpful, because the problem is not in any system of cache... –  Maïeul Nov 17 '13 at 11:06
Ok, it seem the problem is more complexe. –  Maïeul Nov 17 '13 at 11:43
See my answer bottom –  Maïeul Nov 17 '13 at 11:44
So, I made a fork, to correct temporaly this bug. geekographie.maieul.net/Linux-Libertine-chiffre –  Maïeul Nov 17 '13 at 19:25
