By "wrongly" you mean that it looks like a different font was actually
used?  Because I cannot see anything wrong with the display shown in
that screenshot.

If the font seems to be the problem, then please use format-mode-line
to format a line of text using that font, then type "C-u C-x =" on one
of the characters that are rendered incorrectly, and see which font
was actually used for its display.  That might give a clue about
what's going on.
