Thanks to everyone for your explanations.  I now understand why the
truncation happens, and why mark activation is expected to affect
character composition.

The issue that prompted this report, however, is the alternating
toggling of certain character compositions while typing in a separate
part of the buffer (steps 9 and 10 in the OP), where no face change is
involved.  I'm sorry for not making this clearer from the outset.

If you think this is unsurprising behaviour given the display engine's
current implementation, I don't mind if you close this issue.
Otherwise, perhaps either this issue can be retitled, or I can submit a
new issue focussing only on that part of the OP.

Sorry for the confusion, and thanks again.
