I'm not sure, either.  The second way happens when we generate the
glyph matrices -- do we select font before or after that?  If after,
we probably look for a font that supports all of the characters in the
composition.  Perhaps Handa-san could comment on this.

But, at least in my testing, I used a font that definitely supports
both characters, and the composition still didn't happen.
