What kind of bugs do you have in mind?  If the characters aren't
composed, then the only bug I can think of is that nsfont.m somehow
processes the character metrics in the font incorrectly.  To test this
hypothesis Someone(TM) should show the character metrics using some
external tool, and compare that with what nsfont.m calculates.  Or,
alternatively, show that exactly the same font does produce a correct
display on another platform; then we could compare the two font
back-ends we have for these platforms.

As long as none of this is done, adding more pictures to this
discussion doesn't help us make any progress.  And I cannot understand
why requests for showing "C-u C-x =" are consistently ignored by the OP.
