That's because U+1F44D is a double-width character:

  (char-width ?👍) => 2

while U+263A is not double-width.

So as long as indentation works in columns and not in pixels, this is
a "feature".

I don't believe surrogates have anything to do with this, since Emacs
works with Unicode codepoints, not their UTF-16 encodings.

Which is probably a subtle bug: this should behave like the first
snippet.

Thanks.
