I'm quite sure it is the result of how the display of complex scripts
is implemented.  However, ...

... I think it would be best to file a new bug report, which is _only_
about the above-mentioned alternations in display of composed
characters, with specific examples only for that issue.  Then these
examples could be analyzed, and either (1) we find some bug that will
then be fixed, or (2) we conclude that these are artifacts of the
current implementation of the display engine, and make this a wishlist
bug report.
