Thanks for pointing me to "C-u C-x =". This showed me that on my W2k
machine the glyphs were taken from the font »Arial Unicode MS«. This
font was (for some reason which I do not know) available on my W2k
machine but not on the XP machine.

I did not expect that all those glyphs could be taken from more than one
font at a time so I compared only with respect to Courier New and thus
could not track down this problem by myself.

Please pardon me that I mistook this for a bug and submitted this
unnecessary report.
