[XeTeX] ArabXeTeX Kurdish input problem

Dear all,

I am trying to write some Kurdish text (Behdini dialect) using ArabXeTeX 
1.0, but I have a problem in that I don't seem to be able to get Unicode 
character 0698. This is a very important character, but when I type 'j', 
it just outputs the latin character 'j' (not even U+062C as the table in 
the manual shows; typing 'c' typesets U+062C, as it should, so this is 
OK). Everything else seems to work as it should. Am I missing something?

Below is the test document I wrote.

Thanks in advance for all your help,
