I'm working on such a test suite.  That's the only way to put an end to
the current practice of fix-one-bug-introduce-three.

there is some test data for Devanagari (Hindi) here
conjuncts-hi.txt  is a practical list of conjuncts (those that are
actually used!)
mahabharat.txt - a sample text (covers almost all chars in devanagari
unicode range - a longish version of 'quick brown fox...')

there are some more test cases for per character combinations &
variants, but not yet checked in the svn there.
