Not only that, but in general there is no guarantee that a given sequence involving a combining character will necessarily have a normalization to a precomposed character, even if there is one which "looks right." The folks on Stack Overflow have it right.

This is not a "bug," an "oversight," or any sort of failure on the part of the Standard.
