    I think there are several things going on here. A font does need to have
    the appropriate attachment points. Doulos SIL should have upper and lower
    attachment points on all the Cyrillic characters. If some are missing then
    that's a mistake that should be reported (to me).

    In the case of SIL fonts, diacritics on Cyrillic worked fine in Word 2003
    (including the mentioned sequences) but, we've discovered, not in Word
    2007 (tested on Win XP and Vista). It is not a Uniscribe issue as I've
    tested this with various versions of Uniscribe in Notepad. Actually, it
    may be that Word 2007 enforces OpenType tables more strictly and we need
    to modify the OpenType tables in our fonts. We are investigating this.
