I forgot that grapheme clustering is done in m17n, not Emacs itself.
The m17n code (in ARAB-OTF.flt) is reasonable - it clusters letters
with combining marks.  It *seems* I have a problem with tpu-forward-char
and tpu-backward-char; it's as though there's an initialisation fault
which stops them stepping through the Arabic compositions at first.  It
may be an issue with the presumably underlying forward-char and
backward-char; I haven't investigated further.  I'll have to record
the exact actions provoking the problem before I formally record a bug.
