Yes, it's simple enough to fix.
The reason why we set characters to also match the decomposition of other unicode characters is that this lets us match a letter combined with a non spacing accent.
Within that, I've already added a clause to avoid matching when the decomposition has more than one letter (this prevents "a" from matching "am").

Clearly, we need another clause to avoid this situation here.
If no one has a different opinion, I'll add a clause so that a decomposition is folded only if it contains at least one non-spacing character. (though I'm not sure how to check for this, at the phone right now).

That would fix this situation, and wouldn't affect how ascii characters are allowed to match unicode characters. This would only affect how ascii characters are allowed to match decompositions.
