Are you sure that your Emacs is using the Droid Serif font
for "→"?  I've just installed the droid-ttf package
(ubuntu), but the installed Droid Sefif font:

  /usr/share/fonts/truetype/droid/DroidSerif-Regular.ttf

does not contain a glyph for → (U+2192), so Emacs uses some
other automatically found font for that character.  Please
check which font is used for → in your Emacs by putting
cursor on that character and type C-u C-x =.  If you do find
that your Emacs is using the Droid Serif font, could you
please send me that font?

There's a possibility that they find a better alternative
font than what Emacs finds.
