As I understand it, the ZWNJ needs to be an actual glyph in the font  
you're trying to use (which is weird in a way but makes sense if you  
think about it). It's unlikely that the LM fonts have this glyph, but  
I'm surprised by the output you've got nonetheless. I'd recommend  
that you grab a font like Gentium and see how that goes...
