Problem solved.  It turned out to be a fileencoding issue with vim.
om.tmac is latin1 encoded, and somehow the copy I'm working from
ended up utf8.  Didn't spot it until I diffed my copy with the
original and saw that some .tr requests involving diacritics were
being diffed out and replaced with gobbledygook.

Though that doesn't explain refer's "working in some places but
not in others" behaviour with respect to named glyphs.  Rainy day
problem, I guess.
