Ah!  Very strange XLFD font name; PIXEL_SIZE="x",
POINT_SIZE="x", RESX="12", RESY="120"!  Perhaps Emacs should
just ignore such a font.  Which font is actually opened when
you do:
% xfd -fn -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-x-x-x-12-120-p-67-iso8859-1

Under the test conditions

        X11 thin client -> intermediary host (Xubuntu) -> emacs/xfd (Solaris):

the above command reports this font at the top of the window:

        -Adobe-Helvetica-Medium-R-Normal--12-120-75-75-P-67-iso8859-15

I couldn't find any of these strings in the font server's repository,
but I did find this font alias on the thin client's font repository:

        # Found in /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/75dpi/fonts.alias:
        75dpi/fonts.alias:"-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal-x-x-x-12-120-p-67-iso8859-1" 
"-adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-120-75-75-p-67-iso8859-15"
