User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Macintosh; U; PPC Mac OS X Mach-O; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20060619 SeaMonkey/1.5a

The "Apple Symbols" font is installed on MacOSX 10.3 and later.

It shows up in the Font Menu in Firefox and Camino (but not SeaMonkey -- a separate bug?).

Still, glyphs present in that font are not rendered (treated as missing).

Look at ⋆ (U+22C6) or ☙ (U+2619), to pick two examples.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View a page containing Unicode code-points supported by "Apple Symbols", but not by other installed fonts.

Actual Results:  
Rendered as missing (?)

Expected Results:  
Should have been rendered using glyphs from "Apple Symbols"
Confirmed on trunk.

Ever confirmed: true
This works in a 1.8 branch (!) Camino, and in a cairo-cocoa Camino, so I assume it's fixed in a cairo-cocoa Minefield, too.
Since Henri's testcase works in a branch Camino, I presume it was Cocoa widgets that fixed this for everyone else, but closing WFM since I'm not sure and don't feel like digging around for an exact build.

WFM in Gran Paradiso Alpha 2, of course.
