Interestingly enough, it turns out that it works with the original
font name (with the 10646 in it).

I got it to work by changing "emacs.font:" in my ~/.Xresources to
"emacs22.font". There seems to be an Ubuntu bug here. Even though I
install the main Emacs 22 package named "emacs", and it grabs its
dependency (emacs22-gtk), I don't get an executable named "emacs". I
only get one named "emacs22".

Thanks.
