Yes, I am aware of that.

In my case I use Junicode for just about everything, so I set Story
Editor to use it for display as well. And that is the source of my
confusion. Story Editor lies. As a result I wasted everyone's time
filing an unnecessary bug report. Had I known that Story Editor has a
different standard for the truth I would have instead filed a feature
request to make Story Editor tell the truth. :)
