When I input Japanese characters using a Japanese IME, everything works okay except for the spacebar. A garbage character is rendered instead of a "full-width" space.
Steps to reproduce:
- Make a new C# class.
- Switch the IME to Kotoeri or Google IME in "Hiragana" mode.
- Press the spacebar.
- Instead of a full-width space, a garbage Unicode character appears.
Stepping through the code, the correct code point (U+3000, IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE) is being emitted, but the default font Menlo as well as several others render it incorrectly as a garbage Unicode symbol. The spaces look right if I use the font "Hiragino Mincho Pro." "Menlo," "Monaco," and "Marker Felt" each rendered it incorrectly.
Retina MacBook Pro 13-inch, Early 2013, Mavericks 10.9.1(13B42). Xamarin Studio 4.2.2 build 2 (with a freshly-updated Mono 3.2.5).
I haven't tried to repro on previous versions.

This can't be fixed while Gtk+ on OSX keeps using pango-atsui.
Details explained here in Japanese: http://kki-zakki.blogspot.jp/2008/12/monodevelop-20-alphamac-os-x.html
That's very out of date. We are using CoreText, not ATSUI.
So, I've done a bit of debugging/building MonoDevelop itself, but this is lower-level than I've gone before with Mono. Can someone point me to some details re: debugging GTK+ in MonoDevelop-Mac? I'd like to figure out what can be done to solve this issue.
Or, who's point on this issue, and what can I do to help that person?
Re: ATSUI/CoreText, if there is any ATSUI code, it should be removed since ATSUI was deprecated as of Xcode 4.6.
I have checked this issue and I am still able to reproduce this issue. I observed that I am using the space using Hiragana language, than Instead of a full-width space, a garbage Unicode character appears.
Hence I am changing its status to confirmed.
