Well it is neither polyglossia nor fontspec, because I have ran the following file:



\makeatletter\language\l at arabic



and still get that odd behavior: between ^^^^0643 I get flawless hyphenation but not between ^^^^200d

My patterns are \patterns{^^^^0643^^^^200d1^^^^200d^^^^0643

I'm attaching my xelatex.log file, do you see any file that can have affected the behavior of ^^^^200d?
