I observe these strange things with Emacs current trunk (GTK builds).

On GNU/Linux


$ emacs --font "Monospage-12" &

then Options/Set Default Font shows "DejaVu Sans Mono" Book 12 to be
selected! and not Monospace which is in the menu too!

Starting with:

$ emacs --font "DejaVu Sans Mono-12" &

Options/Set Def... shows "Sans" Regular 12 to be selected and the
look of Emacs is not so good... and we could continue with similar examples.

On Cygwin

Here in .Xdefaults (but the same is reproducible from command line) I have:

Emacs.FontBackend: xft
Emacs.font: Monospace-15
Xft*antialias: true
Xft*autohint: true

but Options/Set Default Font shows "BitStream Vera Sans Mono" Roman 15.


Emacs.font: Bitstream Vera Sans Mono-15

effectively Set Default Font shows the right font, but even in this case
some strangeness happens:

Why for urxvt, xterm [1] I can set the size to 14 while for Emacs I need
the size 15 to obtain the same identical results?

(This happens since the first week of June, after some changes in CVS.)


[1] For example:

XTerm*faceName: BitStream Vera Sans Mono
XTerm*faceSize: 14
