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"

I see.  As it's an alias, this correct font name:
        -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-120-75-75-p-67-iso8859-15
should be included in the list returned by
xfont_list_pattern even if we ignore that alias.  So, I've
just installed a fix to ginore such an errornous name.

Could you please try again with the latest code?

I can confirm that the latest patch does indeed prevent crashing due
to a bad font alias designation.  Thanks, Kenichi.
