Most likely this is because the second character has
syntax "word", while the first does not.  The regular expression
matching TODO words for font-lock expects the TODO keyword
to have word syntax (at least the first and last character of it).

Try this:

(add-hook 'org-mode-hook
   (lambda ()
     (modify-syntax-entry (string-to-char "\u25b6") "w")
     (modify-syntax-entry (string-to-char "\u25b8") "w")))

Matt, maybe this information could go into the FAQ?
