Do you have a "Courier" truetype font on your system? Normally the Windows font "Courier" is a raster font. If you have both, the problems may be being caused by the two fonts getting confused. The fact that Emacs has chosen glyph code #x4D to represent character code #x4D suggests that it is falling back on using the character code throughout, which is required for raster fonts and Windows 9x/ME, but when outputting it still seems to be expecting glyph codes for some reason (normally the font is marked as not supporting glyph codes, which should cause the display code to DTRT,albiet slower than if the glyph codes were already available).
