Adding work-arounds listed in another issue here:

To work around this problem there are 3 possible ways:

1) If the installation was done with root privileges everything should be fine.
That is the system wide font should have been updated properly.

2) remove the system wide installed font manually (and from all other places the
system might look for the font), then install the new font system wide manually.
The new font can be found within the OOo installation (named opens___.ttf). For
windows the directory to look into is 'Basis\share\fonts\truetype'

3) Remove all OpenSymbol fonts from the installation but NOT the one from with
the OOo installation. In that case OOo should make use of the font version found
in the installation and that will (always) be the correct version.
However this solution will be a bad idea if you want to print, because in that
case the printer will not find the OpenSymbol font. On the other hand, since now
the correct Unicode points get used by Math, you will probably still have luck
as long as some other installed font provides the characters in question.
