A fellow Neep Alt-er!  Have you also tried the Neep Alt ISO10646-1
registry fonts from Debian's xfonts-jmk package?  When I use the
ISO10646 fonts with the new font backend, Emacs seems to think that
the font is missing large quantities of codepoints.  Left and right
quotes, for example, show up using double-width Chinese fonts.  I'm
curious whether other people see the same thing.

Since the whole Neep Alt ISO10646 font collection is a hack (it's
Neep Alt ISO8859-1 superimposed on Misc-Fixed ISO10646), there's
always a chance that there's something wrong in the font itself, but
everything shows up just fine in xterm.  When I have the time I'm
planning on digging into Xft as the next suspect.
