As I wrote in the report above, it seems a problem of the Unicode line breaking
standards (http://www.unicode.org/reports/tr14/). ICU just implemented it

So the switch statement in break_lines.cpp is to work around bugs in the
Unicode standards.

If the Unicode line breaking algorithm would be fixed, ICU's line break
iterator would work correctly. Then WebKit will work well without any patches.

But if so, we need to wait the fix propagation from the Unicode standards, ICU,
WebKit to Safari. It will take too much time.

I suggest that the patch should be applied to fix this problem quickly in
