There's no need, thanks.  But it would be interesting, I think, to see
the output of "C-u C-x =" for the same pair of inserted characters,
but with your default font (assuming it is capable of displaying the
accented a).

Anyway, I've tried this on my system, after installing version 1.020
of the font, and I don't see the problem you report: the 2 characters
are composed and displayed as you'd expect.

So I think this might be some issue with the shaping engine you are
using -- do you have the latest versions of the libraries mentioned in
INSTALL, under "Complex Text Layout support libraries"?  If you do,
perhaps Handa-san could comment on this.

For the record, my system uses the Windows standard Uniscribe shaping
engine, and the composition information it returns is different:

  Composed with the following character(s) "̀" using this font:
    uniscribe:-outline-Source Code Pro 
Medium-normal-normal-normal-mono-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1
  by these glyphs:
    [0 1 97 231 8 1 7 12 4 nil]
