[XeTeX] ArabXeTeX: Alif Maqsura

This is another question regarding ArabXeTeX in "fullvoc"-mode and I  
am sure that this time no other package is involved. Please compare  
the output of the two test examples below. The first shows how  
ArabTeX renders a word with "alif maqsura", a special letter  
representing a long "a" vocal at the end of the word. In the second  
example, ArabXeTeX seems to interpret the alif maqsura as an ordinary  
letter, and since no vocal follows at the end of the word, it places  
a silent marker "sukkun" above it. This is not what it supposed to be  
– may I report this as a bug? Or did I miss something?
