--- Comment #10 from Akira TAGOH <tagoh at redhat.com> ---
After taking a look at UAX#29 and the Pango code, current behavior is following
the Unicode standard unfortunately.

Here is the details how the text segmentation is decided in Pango according to
the standard:

First, the character type for the above characters are:

Pango is looking at the grapheme boundary rule to decide if a character should
be deleted by backspace key. it's defined as following in UAX#29:

* Break at the start(GB1) and end(GB2) of text.
* Do not break between a CR and LF(GB3). Otherwise, break before(GB4) and
after(GB5) controls.
* Do not break Hangul syllable sequences(GB6,GB7,GB8).
* Do not break between regional indicator symbols(GB8a).
* Do not break before extending characters(GB9).

Only for extended grapheme clusters:
* Do not break before SpacingMarks(GB9a), or after Prepend characters(GB9b).
* Otherwise, break everywhere.

According to the table 2 in UAX#29, non-spacing mark is categorized into
Extend. so it doesn't break *before* U+0C4D. but no rules to not break *after*

At this point, there are no standard that the software can refers the material
to prevent that behavior. maybe good to escalate this to Unicode.org then.
