Nothing unusual, I'd say:

        character: ; (59, #o73, #x3b)
preferred charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV))
       code point: 0x3B
           syntax: <    which means: comment
         category: .:Base, a:ASCII, l:Latin, r:Roman
      buffer code: #x3B
        file code: #x3B (encoded by coding system utf-8-unix)
          display: by this font (glyph code)
    xft:-unknown-DejaVu Sans 
Mono-normal-normal-normal-*-18-*-*-*-m-0-iso10646-1 (#x1E)

Character code properties: customize what to show
  name: SEMICOLON
  general-category: Po (Punctuation, Other)

There are text properties here:
  face                 font-lock-comment-delimiter-face
  fontified            t

All that changes is the font name.

BTW, if I start Emacs with a non-xft font, text is displayed normally.
