The 'h' in mathfont is a probably a bug in the font (planck constant 
issue as unicode math has no italic h - sic) The large () puzzle me a 
bit as one would expect small ones to start with.

But ... keep in mind that eulernova is unfinished. Although it is an 
official (dante funded) project, we have to wait till Khaled has found 
time for it which is probably less an issue with a few smal patched to 
the font, but making it complete is large effort.

One complication is that euler is normally a mixed-in font, so there is 
an upright/italic cq. distinction issue there that will always make 
euler a font that should be used when the domain permits it.
