Thanks.  Let me be sure I understand what you are saying.  If I invoke
hb-view like this:

  hb-view -u 0x0634 -O png -o sheen.png DejaVuSansMono.ttf

then the result is the following PNG image:

Attachment: sheen.png
Description: PNG image

Do I understand you correctly that this is the expected result with
that font?  Because what Emacs displays, even without HarfBuzz as its
shaping engine, looks exactly like that: the leftmost part of the
letter is off-screen.

I believe this is about the other part: displaying text which is
partially selected, when selection is shown as a different background
color.  You are saying that to do its job, a shaping engine needs to
see the entire text, not just the part which has the same colors.

Thanks again for your comments.
