I will be surprised if its a font issue. The rounded dot is normally added by the shaper when it does not expect a dependent vowel or mark at that place.

One loose case can be GDEF and if glyph definition is not correct. Uniscribe I believe depends on that where as atsui or harfbuzz doesn't.

For example, testing the text using the Gautami font exhibits the problem in MS Word 2007, IE 10, Firefox, and Chrome. But using Arial Unicode MS, the programs show the character right, except Chrome. Using Nirmala UI, the problem is present, except in Firefox.
