Why would most FontAwesome icons work but not one?

A box implies that the code point could not be mapped. FX code in this 
is completely cross-platform until you get down to requesting the glyph from
DirectWrite or CoreText so the most likely things are that either they 
can't map
it or its what Mario said.

Suppose you also have a copy of this font *installed* somewhere .. its 
that you are then using the installed one in some case and the one in 
the jar
in another case ?

If that's not it, you can send me your app and I'll see what I see ...
