The difference MAY be that I didn't actually cat xgraphics each time
after changing the font. I merely changed the font, while the earlier
xgraphics result was viewable in the terminal. If the fallback scheme
relies on actually changing the internally-stored character code, rather
than changing which glyph is used to draw that character, then my
technique would bypass the fallback.
