Please evaluate:

(let ((buf (get-buffer-create "test encodings")))
  (with-current-buffer buf
    (insert "Encoding windows-1251: "
            (propertize "привет\n" 'charset 'windows-1251))
    (insert "Encoding      unicode: "
            (propertize "привет\n" 'charset 'unicode)))
  (switch-to-buffer-other-window buf))

What I see in "emacs -Q" is attached as Emacs window snapshot. Please
notice how two strings look very different where encodings differ. What
I see in my "regular" Emacs is almost the same, just in larger font

The question is why Emacs doesn't use the default font for windows-1251
encoding when the font definitely has all the needed glyphs?
