Ah, thanks. Here it is for one of the '@':

   character: @ (64, #o100, #x40, U+0040)
     charset: ascii (ASCII (ISO646 IRV))
  code point: #x40
      syntax: . 	which means: punctuation
    category: a:ASCII graphic characters 32-126 (ISO646 IRV:1983[4/0])  
buffer code: #x40
   file code: #x40 (encoded by coding system undecided-unix)
     display: by this font (glyph code)

I just noticed, too, that the artifact in a space will go away if I  
move the cursor over it.
