I don't know exactly.  RMS's bug report just says "a 37-line
Linux terminal".

??? I wrote "Konsole and kterm" treats U+202D as non-spacing
character.  I think that is the correct way, and the others
(gnome-terminal, xterm, and Linux console) are wrong.

A display table is used both for terminal and window system,
but, on a window system, some font may have special glyphs
for those characters.  If we setup a display table for
U+202D, Emacs can't display U+202D by such a glyph on window
system.

So, if we implement some work-around for such terminal as
gnome-terminal, I think it is better to modify
compose-gstring-for-terminal so that it replaces U+202D
(actually all zero-width characters of Unicode category Cf)
with a single SPACE instead of prepending a SPACE.  Please
try the attached patch.
