Thanks.  But why not use the value of face_id computed in the loop
above the locus of your patch (which does that for any character but
the TAB)?

Anyway, there's some magic about the TAB character and compositions
that I always wondered about.  Perhaps it's time to find out why
composition-related code tests characters against the TAB in so many
places.  Handa-san, can you tell why, please?
