Behdad, this looks like a fontconfig issue to me. 

For some odd reason, gucharmap decides to pick female, earth and male
from some CJK fonts, but all the other symbols from dejavu.

Comment 6 Matthias Clasen 2006-09-07 23:33:24 EDT
It appears that this will be (accidentally) fixed in fontconfig 2.3.97
Comment 7 Lawrence Lim 2006-09-07 23:46:29 EDT
Moving to MODIFIED for QE to confirm the fix. Thanks.
Comment 8 Behdad Esfahbod 2006-09-08 11:42:51 EDT
Ah, I'm not surprised that fontconfig 2.3.95 was broken.
Comment 9 Xiaohong Wang 2006-09-29 01:36:00 EDT
Verified that it has been fixed in latest FC6:
# rpm -q fontconfig
