Problem with JCK fonts


I need your help to solve a strange problem.
I've installed a JCK font on my system (watanabe and wadalab) for a java application.
I test the font with xfd and showfont. These tools display a symbol for the 0x5529 character (it is an example, the problem is not only for this one) that doesn't match with the unicode specification (look at

But, the character is correctly display in my java application (with the correct configuration).

So, the font is not concerned!!!

I've no idea why!!

Some information on my system:
- Mandrake 9.2 (I know, it is a very old distribution. But, i made the test on a Sarge and i've got the same results)
- My locale is fixed with fr_FR. I tried with ja_JP.utf-8 and still the same problem.

Thanks for your advices.
