Aha.  Yes, that does sound like what I see.

I fully trust that you know more than me about what makes sense in
general, and I have no opinion about that.

But in the specific case of emojis, I would have expected that the
emojis just get deleted in one go, as that is what happens in other
software where I use emojis.  (Mostly chat programs on my phone.)

Would it be possible and make sense to handle emojis differently from
other grapheme clusters in that regard?  The desire not to retype them
from scratch might be less of a concern now that we have `emoji-insert'.
