I think this was fixed by yesterday's change.  Please test with the
latest one.

This also happens on X11.  Suppose we have


but not for

  -sony-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-150-75-75-c-80-iso10646-1 .


  emacs -q -fn -adobe-courier-medium-r-normal--14-140-75-75-m-90-iso10646-1

followed by

  (set-frame-font "-sony-fixed-medium-r-normal--16-150-75-75-c-80-iso8859-1")

fails to set the second font.  If the first invocation is just "emacs
-q", then set-frame-font succeeds.

I don't find much difference.  Of course, there are some differences
in integral/fractional metrics, without/with typographical features
such as kerning.  Is the difference more than those?
