From bug 113134 comment 15, "when you select the Heh by keyboard, it will also select the Mapiq, which will result in the character appearing correctly when changing the font, but if you select the Heh by mouse, it will not select the Mapiq, resulting in no change of the Mapiq when changing the font.

See screencast [attachment 137001 [details]] from 00:36.

This didnt happen with the arabic diacritics i tried, and dont know all the hebrew ones that are available to test, so i'll leave it to Eyal and Lior to see if it is an isolated hebrew diacritic or does it happen to all.

Reproduced in:

Build ID: 9050854c35c389466923f0224a36572d36cd471a
CPU threads: 8; OS: Linux 4.9; UI render: default; VCL: gtk3; 
Locale: en-US (en_US.utf8); Calc: group

OS: Debian 64bit Stretch (Debian 9.2, with some backported packages)

In some experiments, both character and Mapiq were selected by mouse, yielding correct placement of the Mapiq when font was changed. In other experiments, only the character was selected and the reported behavior was seen.
