I think the same thing happens with x font-backend when
iso10646-1 font is requested.  But, it doesn't cause a
problem on GNU/Linux.

I managed to install mingw and msys, and built Emacs with
them.  Then, I started Emacs, set the defualt font to "Arial
Unicode MS", and insert many #x2203 characters.  But, I
can't reproduce the problem.

By the way, I also installed gdb-6.8-mingw-3.tar.bz2.  But,
with "M-x gdb", pp and pr commands doesn't work.  They print
nothing.  They do work when gdb is invoked from command
line.  Do you know what is wrong?
