bug#25216: 26.0.50 [regression]; Curly quotes are not found in some size

From: Dmitry Alexandrov
Subject: bug#25216: 26.0.50 [regression]; Curly quotes are not found in some sizes of ‘Terminus’ font
Date: Sat, 17 Dec 2016 04:03:07 +0300
User-agent: Gnus/5.13 (Gnus v5.13) Emacs/26.0.50 (gnu/linux)

GNU Emacs (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu)
Repository revision: 6bf83218314db1c63ce34564edfb994d9431b28a
Debian GNU/Linux 8.6 Jessie
xfonts-terminus 4.40-2 as shipped in Debian

Steps to reproduce:

   $ emacs --quick --font '-*-terminus-medium-r-*-*-20-*-*-*-*-*-*-*'

Find some document with curly quotes: ‘’ and “”.  GNU Emacs Manual (‘<f1> r’) 
uses them heavily, for instance.

It looks wrong:

‘C-u C-x =’ says that instead of Terminus 
‘x:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-200-75-75-c-100-iso10646-1’ font is used for 
rendering quotes.  When I request 24th size, I got yet another font — 

In a strange way there is no such a problem with some other sizes:

   $ emacs --quick --font '-*-terminus-medium-r-*-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-*-*'

is okay, for example.  ‘C-u C-x =’ says that 
‘xft:-xos4-Terminus-normal-normal-normal-*-16-*-*-*-c-80-iso10646-1’ is used in 
that case.

The reason is *not* that Terminus just does not have these glyphs — it does.  
Moreover — GNU Emacs 24.4.1 finds and renders them correctly:

   $ emacs24 --quick --font '-*-terminus-medium-r-*-*-20-*-*-*-*-*-*-*'
