I was waiting for someone who knows more about this than I do to answer, 
but I'll display my ignorance.

Afaik that's not a bug, that's the way combining characters are 
*supposed* to render when they don't have any character to combine with. 
  There's a way to prevent that; I _think_ it's to precede the combining 
character by a non-breaking space (U+00A0).  But I haven't tried that.
