In fact, _any_ font seems to cause that, as long as the other
arguments of set-fontset-font are as above.

I don't know.  The code seems to expect one nil as the last element of
the vector, but not in the middle.  Note that the commentary at the
beginning of fontset.c explains when RFONT_DEF may be nil.

I will look into this soon if no one beats me to it.

Btw, U+E9F8 is a PUA character; how did it get into a context where we
are trying to display it?
