Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209391
cursoring behaviour with composed GSUB characters
Last modified: 2014-03-25 20:54:10 EDT
Description of problem:
Noticed something interesting on the cursoring, it works ok for GPOS characters
but not GSUB characters like those found in the attached Test Cases.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.loaded the Test Case with firefox
2.copy and paste one of the char into oowriter (in my case TC #61)
3.press left arrow key (<-)
Cursor still on the right of the character
Should move to the left of the character
Interestingly, after Step 3, try Ctrl-V, the characters will get "mashed"
together. Similar behaviour was not observed in gedit.

test case for oriya locale
The last time there was something like this it was a grapheme clustering table
issue, icu/writer is probably still considering the single "character" to be
comprised of separate bits which can be cursored into.
Well, this is tricky, but I've added code to icu 3.6-6 which seems to "do the
right thing" for oriya and malayam with respect to such pango-like cursoring
through "foo virama foo" constructs.
Some testing outside the specialized virama using tests of these examples for
normal oriya/malayam text would be "a good thing"(tm)

Strange, I could have *sworn* there was more comments than this in this bug
along the line of "I'm confident it works, but it's not a very elegent solution,
albeit the same as that of pango" and that it was set to modified, and even
maybe verified, closed...
anyway for RHEL-5 we have 3.6-5.5, and all looks well for me there for test case
41 and for other foo virama foo constructs for cursoring through them
