Affects: gnome-terminal (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

Description:
Ever since I upgraded from breezy to dapper, gnome-terminal doesn't display all unicode characters correctly anymore.  The lowest 256 character (i.e. the unicode blocks basic latin and latin-1 supplement) are displayed correctly,
but characters from (for example) the latin extended A/B and greek/coptic blocks are displayed as double-width characters, while they should be single-width (see screenshot).

This only happens in gnome-terminal: other terminals (xterm specifically) and
other gnome input boxes (the gnome-character-map input line for example) work
fine and display the characters as single-width.

My locales are:
[bas at ophelia]~> locale
LANG=en_GB.UTF-8
LANGUAGE=en_NL:en
LC_CTYPE=en_GB.UTF-8
LC_NUMERIC="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TIME=nl_NL.UTF-8
LC_COLLATE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MONETARY=nl_NL.UTF-8
LC_MESSAGES="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_PAPER=nl_NL.UTF-8
LC_NAME="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ADDRESS="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_TELEPHONE="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_MEASUREMENT=nl_NL.UTF-8
LC_IDENTIFICATION="en_GB.UTF-8"
LC_ALL=

I'm using gnome-terminal 2.13.0-0ubuntu2 on dapper.
