Thanks for noting, it's actually a little bug in my font.
As is noted on http://www.dolmetsch.com/musicalsymbols.htm, the degree
slash notes a half-diminished interval, and is applied on chord names
I couldn't find an image of a music score that uses the symbol, but to
my understanding, it should be used like "dim" is used in this picture
("dim" just means a diminished interval):
So it's not a combining character and should not be attached to a note,
but I made it a combining character in my font, so I have to fix that.
