Overlapped whale emoji

Steps to reproduce

1. Launch gnome-terminal
2. Install noto-fonts and noto-fonts-emoji
3. Set the font for gnome-terminal to "Noto Sans Mono CJK KR Regular"
4. echo -e '\xf0\x9f\x90\xb31234'

Actual Results

The whale emoji character overlap with '1' of '1234' as the attached image.

Expected Results

The whale emoji character doesn't overlap the numbers.

U+1F433 currently has the East_Asian_Width property value N in Unicode 8, although it will change to W in Unicode 9.

Also, in your image it looks like the whale is bigger than even 2 cells (partially overlapping the '2') so it seems it's substituted from a different font that isn't compatible with the cell width.

_If_ there's a bug here, it's probably in vte not in pango, where vte should somehow make sure even glyphs substituted from another font obey the grid (maybe by scaling the glyph).
Comment 2 Behdad Esfahbod 2016-06-11 19:12:32 UTC
Agree with Christian.  Don't think scaling is needed.
