With this, I get the error message during startup: "Font `terminus'
is not defined".  The backtrace is

Debugger entered--Lisp error: (error "Font `terminus' is not defined")
  modify-frame-parameters(#<frame address@hidden 0x86142e8> ((font . 
"terminus")))
  set-default-font("terminus")
  eval-buffer(#<buffer  *load*> nil "~/.emacs" nil t)
  ;;; Reading at buffer position 5813
  load-with-code-conversion("/home/bronger/.emacs" "~/.emacs" t t)
  load("~/.emacs" t t)
  #[nil "ฬ

The funny this is that the font is used, but the startup phase is
interrupted and thus Emacs is not fully functional.

Tschoe,
Torsten.
