  And I investigated further, and you are right about it.  I now have
a strange feeling that this is a bug of DejaVu font...  Could it be

  In the TrueType font file, such a character tend to be represented
as a combination of parts; for example, Omega-Tonos is a combination
of "Omega" and "Tonos".  Each of them has its own internal location,
and the font reader reads them and combine them.

  Now, Omega-tonos (u38F) has proper mappings but others like
Alpha-tonos (u386) don't but only uses the tonos part.

Does anybody know why?
