Do you mean that the dash is displayed after rather than over the space
character?  If so, I see this too, but...

... I assume combining characters are always displayed after a space
instead of over it -- at least that's what I see with e.g. U+0301
(COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT) and U+0302 (COMBINING CIRCUMFLEX ACCENT).  That
makes sense to me (otherwise, you couldn't visually distinguish e.g. the
sequence 'aU+0301U+0302' from the sequence 'aU+0301 U+0302') and I would
guess some Unicode standard prescribes it.
