For me, this is not limited to special characters. Trying to load anything in Tk using the 'JoyPixels' font crashes (sometimes it does load but all characters are very random - most are whitespace - and it crashes again after a call to `fc-cache`). IDLE crashes when trying to preview the font.

I believe this is what is being experienced on because they are not using any special characters yet are reporting the same problem.
