If that is true (I don't know) then maybe we should just use a more
ubiquitous glyph?

I don't think we specify a particular font here, do we?  So it seems
like there might be a bug in Emacs here?  I'm not an expert on this
stuff by any means, but I would probably 'M-x report-emacs-bug' to
find out why 'char-displayable-p' would say that a character is
displayable when it's not.
