So it is working internally. In terms of visual appearance what happens?
Using the word صبر for example. In my machine if I press the letters ص then
ب then ر then BACKSPACE then ر I see on the screen رصب that is the last
character is not linked to the ones before, no shaping. If I try to write an
Arabic word and then move using arrow keys the output is even worse.

What I meant is that under bicon use the command cat with no input or output.
What will happen is that if you key in any characters then pressed enter the
characters will be typed back to you in the screen. Try inputting the same
sequence of characters including the backspace and report if the next output
line is the same as the previous.

Don't worry. I have already enough bugs at my disposal:) Please do me this test
again. I need to know if it is a specifity in my machine or everywhere.

By the way, please do the above tests in the console mode not in an x terminal.
The bugs under an x terminal are so different than those under console mode
that I usually think of them as seperate products.
