Based on what I see here, itʼs the usual suspects: eg U+261D. Itʼs not
part of the emoji script in Emacs. The font_range change should cause

    U+261D U+FE0F

to switch to emoji presentation, but it doesnʼt since thereʼs a
composition-function-table entry for U+261D, so the backwards looking
entry for U+FE0F never comes into play.

Iʼm not sure how to fix this.

- We canʼt add U+261D to the emoji script.
- We could add a hack in font_range for U+261D, U+26F9,
U+270C..U+270D, and U+2764 to use the emoji font to check for
composition the same way as we do now when the composition trigger is
an emoji
- We could fix the backwards looking issue with
composition-function-table (I have no idea how complex that is)
