Emacs uses MingLiu in "emacs -Q" on my system.

In "Initial setup" I just do "emacs -Q" and insert these characters and
see the fonts used to display ASCII characters (1st line), WAVY LINE
(2nd line) and WAVY LOW LINE (3rd character), which are:

  - ASCII         -O-Courier New-NNN-mono-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1
  - WAVY LINE     -O-Symbola-NNN-serif-13-*-*-*-p-*-iso8859-1
  - WAVY LOW LINE -O-MingLiU-NNN-mono-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso10646-1

and WAVY LINE     (Symbola) is OK (no slowdown) and
    WAVY LOW LINE (MingLiu) is NOK (slowdown).

After switching to "MingLiu-10" with (set-frame-font "MingLiu-10),
everything is smooth and using all use MingLiu-10 (2nd row of table):

  - ASCII, WAVY LINE -O-MingLiU-NNN-mono-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1
  - WAVY LOW LINE    -O-MingLiU-NNN-mono-13-*-*-*-c-*-gb2312.1980-0

OK, let's narrow the scope and not consider UTF-8 cases (rows 3 and 4).
