Are you sure that you have a font installed which supports emojis? If
so: Which one? Besides: What happens if you perform the steps I outlined
in my bug report? Is the emoji rendered properly and what emoji did you

I can reproduce this with the lastet git version
(5cd66e2c6ca6a82e59927d495498fa6e478594d6) and the latest stable release

I can reproduce this issue under Alpine Linux and Arch Linux. I didn't
test any other operating systems. Under Alpine Linux I am using libx11
1.6.4, xinerama 1.1.3 and libxft 2.3.2.

I don't use a custom config.h and I don't have any custom font
configuration files either. I just use the default config files
installed by fontconfig 2.12.1.
