That's not entirely surprising. It's somewhat surprising that the
main font changes. However, the UTF-8 symbols are coming from a
different font from the main font.
BTW, when are you getting the infinity symbol? Is this related to
X-symbol or in general text?

That's not entirely surprising. In 21.4, you're using mule-ucs, and
the non-Latin symbols are being translated, probably to Japanese
characters. Very likely you have more fonts available that way.

Xft support might give you better, even much better, results. But I
can't promise that, because it's not done, and you could run into some
of the remaining issues. Sorry I can't be more helpful in advance,
but I'm just as happy to see \infinity as ∞. :-)
I think you should try it, though.
