Bug Description

I was wondering why some of my log lines did not contain a final closing doublequote, if the quoted string contained some funky UTF-8. In fact, they did -- the quote glyph was just drawn in the same space as the "font missing" glyph.

Attaching a screenshot to demonstrate. Run

python -c "print u'\U000ffff0X <- the X is obscured'"

to see for yourself.

Do you still see a problem related to the one that you reported in a currently supported version of Ubuntu? Please let us know if you do and in which version of Ubuntu otherwise this report can be left to expire in approximately 60 days time.

Thank you for helping make Ubuntu better.
