Go to that left quotation mark on the decomposition line, and type
"C-u C-x =".  That should give you a hint about what's going on there.

Yes, but does Emacs know that?

The display table is used when Emacs decides at startup that these
characters cannot be displayed.  The code which makes that decision is
in 'set-locale-environment' (see mule-cmds.el, and search for
"char-displayable-p"), which is run at startup.  Can you see what's
going on there?

Also, do you call 'set-locale-environment' in your non-Q session?
