This was in emacs address@hidden

The problem went after I did the following:

1. Did a make clean in admin/unicode 
2. Rebuilt Emacs
3. Updated  describe-char-unicodedata-file to point  at the UniCode.txt
in emacs/admin/unicode 

Characters that demonstrated the problem before I did this and that went
away after:

C-x 8 RET  dog tab f tab == "dog face"
