When running essentially your code, I get a missing character message.  So the
issue here is simply that the box ends up reading "blabla", so the patterns
involving ^^^^200D are not relevant.  Naively I would expect the pattern to work
correctly if your font has this character.

Missing character: There is no ‍<U+200D> in font cmr10!
