Bug Description

The Unicode character U+32C5 (IDEOGRAPHIC TELEGRAPH SYMBOL FOR JUNE) is displayed wrong. It shows a 1 followed by the Chinese symbol for month, but it should be a 6 and the month symbol. It is not always displayed wrong. I found the error appears using the font 'monospace' (is that actually the name of the font?) Also only in sizes between 7 and 11 in Regular and Bold but not Italic or Bold Italic.

I use Ubuntu 9.04 Jauny. I have mstcorefonts and several other font packages installed, as well as Chinese and Japanese language support.

I suppose this won't be fixed by Ubuntu, but could you help me figure out what upstream it is?

Subscribed Arne, Qianqian Fang and CJK testers, could you take care of it?

The reported issue can not be reproduced.

If this still happens, please report your test string (or a web page containing this symbol), your locale as well as your "fc-list" output. Also, it would be greatly helpful to attach a screenshot.

It seems to be partially fixed now, but still sometimes wrong in Firefox. For example at this site, under Java Data:

This appears to be caused by the wrong bitmaps embedded in Uming. All CJK Combined Months and Days need to be fixed.

I believe this will not be an major issue in Karmic, because WenQuanYi Zen Hei will be used for default Chinese glyph rendering. But still, it would be nice to fix this in Uming.

Arne, is Uming still being maintained?
