That's fine. That is typical of the kind of rendering complications
that you get with RA in Indic scripts. You end of up with *glyphs*
placed to the left of the ka consonant base, but that is not
unexpected in complex script rendering like this.
Note that neither the RA nor the VOWEL SIGN E is a combining
mark of ccc=224. RA is itself a base character, ccc=0, and
MALAYALAM VOWEL SIGN E is a combining mark, ccc=0. And the
sequence itself is a well-formed aksara, so is well within the
scope of what a Malayalam layout engine should be handling.
Furthermore, this isn't a case of a stacking of *two* instances
of the glyph for the character VOWEL SIGN E left of the KA, either.
