Given my knowledge of Emacs, I'd more likely conclude that it's
my understanding of the docs of `set-face-font` that's the problem.
It says "FRAME nil or not specified means change face on all frames",
but that leaves open the issue of whether that means 'all existing
frames' or 'all frames that exist now and are created in the future,
until such time as the font is re-set'.

But to _my_ mind this seems like a bug, and I'll report it if my
understanding is not crazy.
