Thank you for them.  I now find what is wrong and committed
a temporary fix.

Actually, the bug was that I ignored it->string_nchars in
composition handling.

By the way, in the current code, field_width and precision
are not handled correctly.  The comments in xdisp.c say that
they are "number of characters" and the current code treats
them as such, but the original intention is "number of
columns occupied by characters".  It seems that fixing it is
not a trivial work.
