Have you tried with more recent PyQt/Qt versions?

I can't reproduce this on Qt 5.3.2 on Debian Jessie with python3:

    from PyQt5.QtCore import QT_VERSION_STR
    from PyQt5.QtWidgets import QApplication, QTextBrowser
    a = QApplication([])
    tb = QTextBrowser()
    tb.setText('÷ Σ')

-> prints 5.3.2 and ÷ Σ
