This is more than likely due to the fact emojis are usually three bytes long. I could believe it if someone said the first two bytes are being used as a wide character and the third (and fourth) is/are being used as a second character, but that's just speculation.

On Linux, I am seeing 4 bullet points, which would point to Chrome using the UTF-8 encoded string as its individual bytes component. This is speculative only as I didn't dig into the actual bug.

Shows one per UChar, doesn't handle surrogate pairs let alone modifiers correctly.
