compose-char is buggy on Windows

The compose-char function seems to have problems on Windows. For
example, if you try the following:

  (compose-region 1 5 (decode-char 'ucs #x221E))

Emacs should display the first few characters of the buffer as an
infinity symbol (Unicode #x221E). Instead, it produces some garbled
character. On GNU/Linux (both console and GTK interface), this works.

This happens for most but not all characters: if I try this trick with
a latin-1 character, it works right. For fancy Unicode symbols, it
never seems to work. This doesn't seem to depend on the font
