It seems that most of Hanzi glyphs are extracted from fonts for
Traditional Chinese scripts (Japanese, Korean or Taiwanese:
I'm afraid some Japanese font is selected). The rest Hanzi which
exist only in Simplified Chinese charset are extracted from
Simplified Chinese font. Saying shortly, "non-Simplified Chinese
font has higher priority than Simplified Chinese font, in Pango's
font scanning".

I remeber the priority is controlled by environment variables,
so I'm afraid some environment variables (LANG or CHARSET) are
not set for Simplified Chinese.
