I did this and the display of the Lao script is the same as before
(i.e., with the composed characters not properly aligned).  Here is the
entire debugging output:

FWIW, when I change the font to DejaVu Sans (not Mono) and visit that
file, the display of all but one of the composed characters is correct
(as I previously mentioned), and the debugging output is exactly the
same as the above; and with the other LAOO-*.flt files under
/usr/share/m17n, on visiting that file when using variable pitch DejaVu
Sans (but not when using DejaVu Sans Mono), the debugging output
additionally contains these lines after the above output:
