I intended to make them all similar, and I didn't notice that -13 for initial/isolated forms is not good. Now I see that sheen and seen isolated forms (U+FEB1,U+FEB5) have also their right space set to -13. I suggest to set them to 45, like what you did for U+FEB3.

However, seeninitial had negative leading space... fixed that now.

That's because it's an initial form: to the right of it is a space. Only the final and medial forms are meant to connect with the preceeding letter. (This also applies to isolated forms, but they aren't used in the substitution tables.)

The space before sheeninitialarabic is 36, while all other similar neighboring glyphs have -13.
