That pretty much invalidates much/most of what I earlier wrote in this
thread.  Sorry for any mis-direction.

I was just trying this out, and was seeing cases where only one of the
angle brackets (for both the U+27E8/U+27E9 and U+2329/U+232A pairs).

After some trial and error, I narrowed it down to instances where there
were only whitespace between the open and close angle brackets when the
buffer was in Lisp Interaction mode (ie the *scratch* buffer).

Either Lisp Interaction has some syntax rules which intentionally limit
highlighting when only whitespace separates the delimiters or something
is triggering a display bug in that situation.  

The partial highlighting in Lisp Interaction mode when only whitespace
separates the delimiters does not happen with parentheses or brackets;
and no highlighting occurs with braces.

I have:

  (set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8)
  (set-default-coding-systems 'utf-8)

in my ~/.emacs and run with LANG=en_US.UTF-8 LC_COLLATE=C LC_TIME=C.
