  When I write several arabic diacritics after a character, the character gets displayed several times (= to the number of diacritics after that character) under screen, which is a wrong behaviour, it is normal in arabic to have two diacritics (such as َّ) after a character.

Here's an example: ردَّ

In screen the character د appears twice, because it has two diacritics after it. Yet it should appear only once.
