Please give a complete recipe, including the name of the character, or
its part, that you typed.  I tried to reproduce this, but couldn't.

Also, in which version of Emacs do you see that?

AFAIK, "C-x 8 RET" doesn't need any file, since all the data is loaded
into Emacs from the uni-*.el files, which are produced from
UnicodeData.txt at build time.

It seem to work for me.
