The latest MD seems to use some non-standard font that does not cover every character at least in reasonable Unicode blocks.

On Japanese environment it does not render valid text anymore.

Sshot attached.

I thought Pango font fallbacks worked on Linux?

To identify which is buggy - pango fallback ingeneral or MonoDevelop specifically - what can I check?

No idea if it is "fixed" but the latest splash screen does not contain localized strings anymore.
