bug#656: Glyphs in Private Use Area not displayed in Emacs CVS

Yesterday I compiled emacs from CVS by doing:

  cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden:/sources/emacs co emacs
  ./configure --prefix=/opt/emacs-cvs --program-suffix=.em23 --with-x-toolkit 
--enable-font-backend --with-xft

It seems to work ok with one for me very important exception: glyphs in the 
Private Use Area are not rendered correctly. They simply appear as empty boxes 
in the buffers. This bug seems to have been around for quite some time 
(introduced somewhere between December and February, I think -- judging from 
the ubuntu packages maintained by Alexandre Vassalotti).

I hope this can be fixed soon, since it is crucial for my work. I use a lot of 
glyphs from the PUA in my research (Old Norse Philology).

Best regards
