After deleting the space, `emacs -Q' behaves exactly the same as the
behavior before the changing of preference to backends was introduced.
This means that, both the "old" behavior and the "new" behavior I
mentioned in previous mail are not what are supposed to be.  So it
doesn't count.

I just notice that it is indeed not Emacs' fault of displaying all
characters as two units of width with the latter font, it is perhaps
due to my improper configuration of X and/or Font Config: Other
programs display characters as two units of width too with it.

As the result, I'm sure I prefer the former one over the latter one,
as long as I can't fix the display of the latter one for X.
