(Sorry if this appears twice on the list...)

Hello all,

Is there a simple way to tell xe(la)tex not to hyphenate *before* a
combining diacritical mark?

For example, please take a look at this minimal example. You must have
DejaVu Sans in order to see the acute sign at the beginning of the
second line.

------- test.tex -------
\setmainfont{DejaVu Sans}
   \hspace*{2.33cm}βαι\char"0301 νο κτλ.

Many thanks in advance,
