I'm afraid I'm still too lame to even judge the difficulty of this, let alone fix it without guidance -> Cedric.
Some analysis and an ugly patch:
I'll take this one seeing as I'm at least *some* knowledge of the complex text layout having struggled through getting some Indic font stuff fixed.

As per mail to the list, doesn't obviously break our Indic rendering and improves the test-case, though I think its more of a band-aid than a full fix, but it'll do for now anyway :-)
