When I compile the file test.tex :

\documentclass[12pt]{amsart}

\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{eucal}
\usepackage{amssymb}
\usepackage{graphics}

\begin{document}

Let $\mathcal{C}$ be a category and consider the
set of morphisms $hom_{\mathcal{C}} (X,Y)$, for objects $X,Y \in \mathcal{C}$.

\end{document}

with xelatex, both C's look nice.
When I do
xelatex -no-pdf test.tex
xdvipdfmx -p letter -q -E test.xdv

the first C looks fine, but not the second one.

Same if use latex instead of xelatex.

So I guess this is a xdvipdfmx-issue , independent of XeTeX ?
