    With the help of members of the mailing list,
    I can offer some empirical evidence on this whodunnit:

    Using the Linux version of Abiword, which uses the Pango renderer,
    both the Code 2000 and the MS Latha font display the vowel signs without the
    unwanted dotted circle. NBSP and normal SPACE give identical results.
    For Code 2000 only, the dotted circle or a similiar ersatz glypg (the
    screenshot is
    not that clear) is drawn for the two-part vowel signs U+0BCA, U+0BCB and
    between the two parts.

    Best Regards,
    Peter Jacobi
