Satya, I am sure firstboot has not done any special rendering stuff. So can you
double check if gedit has the same problem please?

This problem is specific to firstboot?
LingNing, do you have any idea about this?
It looks like the bug about (U+0x0d30) + (U+0x0d4d) + (U+0x200d).
I have fixed this bug in the newest pango.
Then (U+0x0d30) + (U+0x0d4d) + (U+0x200d) can display a new glyph. And U+0x200d
will not display.
This still looks broken to me on today's Rawhide.
which version do you use pango?
I think pango-1.14 has already fixed this bug.
This was pango-1.14.0. Perhaps someone else more familiar with what should be
going on should check.
I don't see any change either testing with pango-1.14.0-2
and firstboot-1.4.19-1 (rawhide-20060814).
Do you use the new font file of Malayalam?
It is very important.
Probably not: fonts-malayalam-2.0-2?
When did the new fonts go in?
Looks good in rawhide-20060817.
