Yes, exact.

According to my tests, the char not displayed is a ncurses problem.
You can check by compiling this small program I wrote: http://weechat.org/files/temp/c/curses.c
(instructions to compile in the file)

But the important thing is that messages should not be truncated any more.

It looks like the characters still are not displayed, but the rest of the line after the character is now showing in 0.4.2-dev

Apparently the character causes some issues when submitting a bug as well... Unicode: \U+1F4A5

The rest of my bug report was this:

Can you please try development version (it is very stable) ?
This problem should be already fixed, see bug #39201

If you still have problem with development version, then please add a comment with the char (I can not see your char).

When weechat tries to display an OS X style emoji character on it fails to do so, and then fails to display the rest of the line as well.
