The problem here is not finding the right font. With gtk2fontsel I can
find and test "Terminus" font, and it works in urxvt and gtk2fontsel
for any symbols. They just find the right file for every symbol or
something like that.

st selects one font and if I specify just "Terminus", non-unicode
version is loaded. I have solved it by specifiying filename. This way
all symbols work. Zoom doesn't work for obvious reason: different file
names are required for different font sizes.
