Thanks.  I ran it through XeLaTeX and that indeed output the composed
character correctly aligned, though the vertical positioning looks worse
to me than with pdflatex (see attached screenshots; text0.pdf is with
pdflatex and text1.pdf with xelatex).

Also, to make this AUCTeX-related, after setting LaTeX-command to
xelatex and typing C-c C-c in the test1.tex buffer, the compilation
failed with the uninformative message "LaTeX: problems after [0] pages"
and no log output.  But running xelatex from the shell worked fine.  Is
there something else necessary to use XeLaTeX in AUCTeX?
