Some debugging:
In the misplaced cases, the `type(nucleus(q))` in mlist.w:2147 == 33 (`math_text_char_node` I think) also `char_top_accent()` will return 0 in that case, so OpenType top_accent pos is not used and will fallback to default math positioning mechanism. I'm not sure if this is a TeX feature or a bug.

Now the default positioning should have centred the accent and it would have passed unnoticed, but it turned to be broken as well; if the accent has top_accent but the base doesn't the accent will be misplaced, like in \hat{0}. Now, removing the half() from mlist.w:2231, so it becomes:

  shift_amount(y) = s + w - width(y);

Seems to give sane default accent positioning in that case (looks identical to xetex's in my eye) and so fare it does not seem to break anything, and it essentially masks the current issue.

It looks like fixing/applying 0000520 should take care of this as well. In any case, the problem is related because of the problem with using '0' instead of an explicit 'not set' value.

Well, it did not. Moreover, the solution Khaled proposed did break something in the case of $\hat{aaaa}$, so my current solution (revision 3984) is

        if (width(y)== 0) {
            shift_amount(y) = s + w;
        } else {
            shift_amount(y) = s + half(w - width(y));

which is still an approximation, but better then nothing. The core problem is that we do not know the width of a MATH accent (width(y)==0) so perfect placement is not possible if there is no 'top_accent' marker
