5. write the key sequence : mcdheovj
6. Press left-arrow key 3 times
7. Press backspace 3 times
8. It should delete 'e' 'h' and 'd' only.
Its deleting 'c' and specially 'm' also which is a consonant and placing
independently not with any conjunct.
9. Now, try with pressing CTRL+z to undo the delete and take back the full word.
10. Its not taking back the full word as before.
(_Please copy to original word and paste once and then try to pasted word,
so make easy to understand_).
It should delete 'e' 'h' and 'd' only. Its deleting 'c' and specially 'm' also
which is a consonant and placing independently not with any conjunct.
Its not taking back the full word as before.
The Delete with backspace should maintain its rule to delete chars or composed
chars within a word. And Undo should revert it back properly in its previous state.

If someone from eng-i18n could contribute a patch for this I'd be grateful.
I'm pretty clueless about this myself.
