Actually, the case is quite simple.
A problem exists *only* with these four typefaces:

  Courier (New), Comic Sans MS, Tahoma, Verdana

All, *All*, *ALL* other typefaces agree that

-- U+2018 is a rotated apostrophe U+2019
-- U+201B is a mirrored apostrophe U+2019

Only the above four typefaces have wrong glyphs at position U+2018,
namely glyphs that actually belong into U+201B.

Note that Trebuchet MS had the same problem in Windows 2000.
However Trebuchet MS was fixed in Windows XP.
