Thanks.

So what is the meaning of the example shown by Bojohan, i.e.:

  (insert (compose-string "\t"))

What is expected from such a 'composition"?

It sounds like the code in fill_composite_glyph_string is not prepared
to deal with a situation where the string's only character is a TAB,
is that right?
