[XeTeX] XeTeX and Arabic

Mr. Kew,

Now that my segmentation fault problem is fixed (many thanks to both 
you and Adam Lindsay, and my apologies to everyone else for the slurry 
of messages), I tried the Arabic.tex example with the (very small) 
catalog of Arabic fonts I have.

The Arabic fonts shipped with OS X worked as expected and desired.

The fonts I have from elsewhere (Windows, for example) behave as 
expected but not as desired: the proper letter is shown, but not the 
proper glyph given the adjacent letter. I wrote "expected," because 
this is what often happen in other applications; changing the font to 
one of the Arabic fonts shipped with OS X fixes the problem.

Is there any way to solve this?
