Hm, I chose COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT and COMBINING CIRCUMFLEX ACCENT more
or less at random, but I do indeed see the sequence 'aU+0301U+0302' as
two grapheme clusters (also with -Q): 'a' with an acute accent over it
followed by a circumflex.  In contrast, the sequences 'aU+0301U+0317'
and 'aU+0302U+0317' are displayed as single grapheme clusters (317 is
COMBINING ACUTE ACCENT BELOW).  I also noticed that the seqence
'-U+0301U+0302' is displayed as a dash followed by a single grapheme
cluster of an acute accent and a circumflex; this holds for all
nonalphabetic ASCII characters I tried and for some but not all
non-ASCII alphabetic characters.  So there seems to be some
inconsistency in the display of combining characters.
