So this is probably a different problem.

Yes, most probably.

What happens if you say

  C-x RET t iso-safe RET

?  Do you then see \u26c3 instead of that character, in xterm?  Does
it have the right color?

One other idea I have is to dump to termscript the commands Emacs
sends to the terminal, and then look at them.

Can someone else see this on the XFCE terminal (I don't have access to
a system with it)?
