In my environment, the sequence U+5E9 U+5C2 is surely
composed.  Please show me the output of this command.

% MDEBUG_FLT=3 emacs --eval '(message "\u05E9\u05C2")'

Mine is this;

 [FLT] (hebr-ff (dejavu sans)
 [FLT]   (SOURCE 05E9 05C2)
 [FLT]   (STAGE 0 "Hh" (05E9 05C2)
 [FLT]     (SUBPART 0
 [FLT]      (COND
 [FLT]       (REGEX "^Hhh*" "Hh" 2
 [FLT]        <0
 [FLT]        :otf=hebr=ccmp+mark 2>))))
 [FLT]   (RESULT (1299 1216 0 0)))

It seems that "dejavu sans" font doesn't have 'ccmp' nor
'mark' feature applicable to that sequence.  It is possible
to detect such a case and adjust glyph-string by Lisp code.
I'll try to implement that kind of code.

I tried to show that sequence with gedit and and firefox.
Both show it with U+FB1D.
