Looks like some side effect of changes in how we select fonts.  Where
Emacs 23 would force the base character to use the font that could
display the combining character, Emacs 24 now does not, which disables
auto-composition because Emacs can only compose characters that come
from the same font.  So the only way to display those characters as
composed is to select a buffer font that can display them.
