Can you give me exact steps, preferably starting with "gvim -u NONE -N",
on how to reproduce this?  An example file would be particularly useful.

I'd guess this is related to the font that you've told gvim to use.
What does ":set guifont? guifontset? guifontwide?" show?

I don't see this either, but if my intuition is right, it's all related
to the font being used.
