Thanks, but that's not how this is supposed to look.  It should look
like here:


The layout in the vertical direction is completely incorrect in all of
the images you show.  Basically, it looks like the vertical layout of
hieroglyphs above other hieroglyphs is either unsupported or doesn't

Maybe I made mistakes in the composition machinery, and that's why it
doesn't display correctly.  But it sounds unlikely, because I see in
your images glyphs that shouldn't be there (they are control
characters which should disappear from display).  Or maybe HarfBuzz
doesn't yet support this script well enough.
