Good.  I will prepare a patch for you to try along these lines, but
I'd really be glad if someone beats me to it.

It's more than overlap, it sounds like the font is not really working
(empty squares mean the character has no glyphs in the font).  I will
look into this when I have time, but in the meantime, please try the
same in an Emacs invoked with "-xrm Emacs.fontBackend:gdi", and see if
these problems persist with the GDI font driver.
