It works now as for this change but apparently, it still is not
fully correct.  At least two characters that I use ("prime" #x2032
and "cubic root" #x221b) are still too wide, however, I don't know
whether they are available in the DejaVu font.

Do you think it's sensible to create a file will all codepoints and
look for problematic chars in a systematic way?
