It is a limitation of XEP: we don't reserve any special processing for
diacritics. They are treated as normal characters, and placed on the line
according to their metrics.
I really wonder how other characters manage to work if you code them
using combined diacritics. May it happen that you have a Unicode
component somewhere in the data stream? Can you please send me a sample

I am afraid there is no good workaround.You can try to specify negative

I strongly recommend using monolithic Unicodes for accented characters, and
a font that has a glyph for "t width dot below". In the current state of
other alternative is unsafe.
