This is a known bug#43363, which was already fixed for the upcoming
Emacs 27.2.

Unlikely.  But you didn't say almost anything about this problem:
which characters take a "strange form", what is that strange form,
etc.  It's possible that an obscure bug related to Arabic shaping,
which was fixed just today (see bug#44521), is what you see.  (Do you
use Ivy or some similar add-on?)
