Hangul Jamo render as U+00xx boxes and produce valgrind errors

Valgrind log from gucharmap
Description of problem:
When I look at the Hangul Jamo (U+1100 through U+11FF) in gucharmap, many of them render as boxes containing numbers between 0000 and 00FF. Dragging across them with the right mouse button sometimes causes the specific numbers to change. I re-ran gucharmap under valgrind and got lots of errors. I get similar behavior by entering a few jamo in gedit with Ctrl-Shift-U, so I don't think the bug is with gucharmap. I may be missing a font, but in that case pango should just show boxes with the 11xx numbers instead of behaving in this bizarre way.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. valgrind gucharmap
2. Choose View -> By Unicode Block.
3. Choose the Hangul Jamo block.
4. Right-drag across the characters.
Some boxes containing 00xx which change unpredictably, and valgrind errors.
Correct rendering or correct numerical boxes, with no valgrind errors.

I could reproduce the problem. Filed a bug at the upstream bug tracker with a patch:
Now fixed in upstream.
Closing this old bug - F14 was EOL quite a while ago and the fix in the current release.
