Thanks, I see this, too.  And it's a very old problem, I see it in
Emacs 24.3 already.

Also, the mouse is not necessary, I can see the problem if I scroll
the *Help* window created by "C-h L" either via the scroll bar or even
with "C-u 1 C-v".

I'm guessing that somehow we don't redraw enough characters to give
the font shaper a chance to shape them correctly.  CC'ing Handa-san,
in the hope that he could have some insights on this.
