Show us the output of M-x describe-cahr RET on both, the correct and
"too big" characters.

Do the chars show up nicely if you start Emacs with...
  emacs -Q -font "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--14*-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1"
... (or similar).  (This should work for Emacs <= 22, not sure about 23.)

Please don't ask about unreleased version on comp.emacs or
gnu.emacs.help.  Follow the advice in INSTALL.CVS instead:

,----[ INSTALL.CVS ]
| Questions, requests, and bug reports about the CVS versions of Emacs

I don't know about the implementation side, but as a user I don't have
any problems WRT unicode on Emacs 22 (CVS, pretest).  Emacs 23
(unicode branch) uses Unicode internally, so it's Unicode support
should be improved further compared to 22.  (The unicode branch will
become the trunk after Emacs is released.)

Bye, Reiner.
