Thanks for your help! This helped me rule out some of the possible error causes, but it didn't solve my problem - please see my update.

comment Creating a startup disk on a partition of a USB drive
This still only lets me choose the drive - I have no options for the partitions on the drive. I'm looking for a method that will make my USB stick a bootable Ubuntu installation stick without touching (and guaranteed not to touch) the data partition on the stick. What you suggest gives me nothing that the default startup disc creator doesn't already have.

I reinstalled the font package (sudo apt-get --reinstall install ttf-ubuntu-font-family, for future readers...) and reproduced the second one - no change. After a reboot, however, all the characters show up again =)
