I could reproduce a similar effect also on Darwin, but a different
font backend driver (xft with libotf 0.9.3, m17n lib/db 1.7.0).

1. emacs -Q &
2. M-x describe-language-environment RET Arabic RET
3. Press and release the mouse button around the Arabic sample text.
   (say, "Arabic" to the left)

The appearance of the sample text changes if I press the button, and
it changes back again when I release it.

The font used for displaying Arabic characters is "Arial Unicode MS".
