OK, I'll need to look at this more deeply.  Does W7 work with the

It is incorrectly displayed in dialogs, but it does not create issues in
eeschema and pcbnew.
I tested 2 other unicode chars (‱ and ☺) shown in dialogs and ‱ is shown

I am thinking these two unicode chars have a code > 16 bits.

Both the bp and smile are in the basic plane (0x2031 and 0x263A). They both worked correctly under Linux without the change.

Here are a few codeblocks that did crash Linux (any symbol in them):

I've pushed an update that hopefully fixes the MSW crash. Let me know if it doesn't work for you.
