      Maybe your problem is caused by a discrepancy between locale configuration and
      installed fonts.

      Suggestion (should work on Gentoo Linux, please tune to your macosx system):

      (1) Uninstall locales, which you do not use, e.g.
      su vim /etc/locale.gen
      :v/\v^(#|en_(AU|NZ|US)| … )/s/^/# /
      :wq
      su /usr/sbin/locale-gen
      To take effect your GUI (X-server?) probably needs to be restarted.
      Theoretically your system should become slightly faster, consume slightly less
      disk space, and become slightly less vulnerable in terms of security … all
      3 should not hurt, or what would you say?

      (2) “locale -a” should list ONLY locales, which you want to use. Install fonts
      for ANY of the listed locales.

      Documentation:
      man locale-gen locale.gen
      :h xfontset
