I just downloaded the version available from this page (dated september
30th, 2003), and it does not have any OpenType table for either Devanagari
or Bengali (or anything beyond Latin). This means that in effect, it does
not uses Uniscribe for rendering. What you are seeing is a simple
juxtaposition of the two glyphs, which "looks" correct in this case; Just
try <U+0915, U+09BF>, or even <U+0915, U+093F>, to see why this is fully
The problem with Uniscribe is that it does not expect the sequence <U+0915,
U+09BE>, so it considers the second to be an incomplete syllable of its own,
ill-formed so it adds a (here spurious) U+25CC glyph in between (or at the
right of uni09BF if you try it).

Agreed. And similarly for Uniscribe, as I wrote.
