Description ⁨خالد حسني⁩ 2013-06-22 10:01:17 UTC
When glyph fallback kicks in, the previous character is always taken from the fallback font needlessly. This seems to have been introduced in 3b4d361c21a1289b664cbcb9c15751d99ef6348d, but nGraphemeStartPos does not seem right to me, as it is the start of the previous grapheme not the current one.

that's definitely not what I want to happen
