I tried this here, and the C's look fine using either driver.

I suspect it must be a font configuration issue affecting the (x) 
dvipdfmx driver, and your setup is somehow different from mine. You  
could try running xdvidpfmx with the flag -vv to get some tracing  
output that shows what font files are used; maybe that will give a  
clue. I get:

If, for example, the driver isn't finding a Type 1 version of eusm7  
on your system, that might account for the discrepancy.
