Wrong symbols with some fonts when using AMS Math style

I receive a sane output when I don't use amsmath.sty. The bug is probably there.
Reported this to LaTeX upstream as well. I'll add a reference as soon as I'll
receive confirmation email from LaTeX people.
The bug is now registered under codename amslatex/3812 and I got this reply:
this is a known problem, and has been reported before to
- 3416: Amsmath's \mathsf \vec prints a tilde accent
- 3683: Wrong output of \vec in supscripts
we plan to deal with these all at once, and will do so
under #3416. for this reason, we will close #3812.
however, i've posted a request to keep you informed when
a fix is made.
we do not yet have a solution; a workaround is to create
explicit commands to produce the vector in the proper
font, for example:
