The key part is "Composed with" etc.  My changes didn't touch the
composed characters, so it's small wonder you see this.

I will try to have a look, once I get the other issues covered, but
don't hold your breath: I don't really understand all the complex
juggling we do with ascent and descent for composed characters, and
unless I find an easy and safe solution, I'd prefer to tell people not
to set these fonts as default fonts than to break character
composition, which is much more central to Emacs display capabilities.

Thanks.
