I think you're right--I took out the \setmonofont...{DejaVu Sans Mono}, 
and no longer get the problem with whatever my default mono-spaced font 
is.  (How do I find out what that is?)

Back with DejaVu, I also tried a ZWSP, but the font doesn't know what 
that is, and outputs a rectangular box instead; the box overstrikes the 
'a' as well.  I also tried a ZWNJ between the a-macron and the pipe, but 
that seems to have no effect (the pipe still overstrikes the a-macron).
