Unicode textFields in Linux & vanishing text

I have found that if I set up a textFld called, say "txtfld" and do this:

set the useUnicode to true
set the unicodetext of fld "txtfld" to (numToChar(2340) & numToChar(2341))

the required chars are entered but cannot be seen;

if I then do a RETURN key press at the start of the string followed by a 
forward DELETE
the text becomes visible . . .

HOWEVER, that is not much good in an application that demands that the 
unicodeText be instantly


This is on Linux ONLY ( 4.00 and 4.5-dp-4)
