I have the same font.

Yes, and I have the same font. (My OS is Windows 7 on a Netbook.) In arabic I 
have a similar bug (the special vowels are at the wrong place), but there is a 
small difference. I hope my remark could be useful:
 After choosing the arabic-input-method:
- By typing "h" (for "Alef" ا) then "U" (for "Ayin" ع ) you get the 2 
characters correctly
- But after typing "X" (for the "vowel" Sukun ْ) you get nothing. (In hebrew 
you can see QUBBUTS (but also at the wrong position - by the FIRST character.) 
[This is THE ONLY difference!] 
- Move the cursor to the beginning of the line (Ctrl-a) you will see the Sukun 
(the small circle). BUT on the Alef NOT on the Ayin.
-- If you write then anything in the SAME line the Sukun disappears! And if you 
change the "WINDOW" (Alt-Tab) and goes back to Emacs it disappears too. 
- Move the cursor again to the beginning of the line (Ctrl-a) you will see the 
Sukun (the small circle) again.
-- If you type ENTER at the end of the line (Ctrl-e) you can write what you 
want, you can always see the Sukun.
