Please show a complete reproducing recipe for this problem.

This means that the font backend couldn't produce a single glyph for
the character combination, for some reason, so it displayed the
original glyphs as a single grapheme cluster.  IOW, character
composition did work, it just didn't find a precomposed glyph in the
font, or maybe the precomposed glyph was rejected for some reason.

We need the detailed use case to investigate.

Please also tell what is your version of HarfBuzz, in case this
matters.

And in the XFT case, what was the shaping engine? was it libflt?

Thanks.
