Derivatives of ``agree''

In which direction do we write the loop the words agreeable, disagree, disagreeable, agreement, disagreement? From the shape of the forms I would be tempted to say that it isn't in the same direction as the circle for ``a'' would be, that is to say I think it's written in the counter-clockwise direction, which doesn't follow the rule for joining circles. But it's never explicitly mentioned in either the Pre-Anniversary or Anniversary manuals.
