Indic Script Bug in Final Cut Pro X

A poster in the Apple Support Communities has pointed out that it's not possible to create Tamil language titles in Final Cut Pro X via copy/paste -- nothing happens.  Direct typing also does not work right.

My tests indicate that the same copy/paste bug affects Burmese, Bengali, Kannada, Khmer, Oriya, and Sinhala.  On the other hand, Devanagari, Gujarati, Gurmukhi, Lao, Malayalam, Telugu, Thai, and Tibetan seem to be possible (but certain Thai characters will not work).

For the problem scripts, workarounds might be to use a separate titling app like Belle Nuit or  create the titles in iMovie and import the track into FCPX.
