What sort of behavior might we look for to find those characters that
should be suspected of having those glyph names? Crashes, non-printing,
glyph substitution, blank spaces, non-advancing cursor? Is the behavior
repeatable in several apps, or is there a particular sort of app that might
be affected by the unusual glyph names? Do people really call their glyphs
>Gunder,< instead of Gundercomma; or >iota¨´< instead of
iotadiaeresistonos? Is this a platform-specific problem or is it more
