Copy and paste from <URL:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yiddish_language>

    the language is called לשון־אַשכּנז  (loshn-ashkenaz

with bidi-display-reordering unset, I get

As you can see, the aleph is composed with the "a" vowel underneath, and
the kaph gets a dagesh.

So there clearly happens some composition.  Whether GTK+ is involved, I
