The thing that the unit test was checking (that RTL_TEXTENCODING_DONTKNOW
is used) caused another bug and IMO was the wrong fix, so keeping the
unit test did not make much sense. Now thinking about it, may be I
should have kept the test and made it check for RTL_TEXTENCODING_SYMBOL
instead, right?

The original issue is now fixed in 37a14c5e359a554195fbcbe2805a284ccf4cb677,
but no unit test there since the fix is now in the font and don’t know
how to test that.
