Thanks for a bug report. I tried to reproduce it here, using your pasted Japanese characters from comment #0 into the composer's Subject line and then choosing File->Print preview, or File->Print->To file, PDF format and both show the text correctly. This is with git mater of evolution, but older WebKitGTK3, that is webkitgtk3-2.4.8-2.fc21.x86_64 here.
I tried with Fedora 22 too, I've there webkitgtk3 2.4.8-5 and I wasn't able to reproduce this initially, when I have evolution run in en_US language. Running evolution as:
$ LANG=ja_JP.utf8 evolution
reproduces the issue, when calling File->Print Preview in Fedora 22. Trying the same in Fedora 21 doesn't reproduce the issue. I'd say, from that, that the problem is somewhere lease than in evolution, because I use basically the same code base in both Fedoras, only the (system) components (libraries) are different. The thing is that I do not know where the problem can be.
Checked with F27.
Not reproducible anymore.
