Emacs-21.0.104 - invalid default font value on W32

Don't know if this has already been reported or not.

(OK, OK, I'm one of those guys who went googling for the source..)

On W32, Emacs-21.0.104 built non-cygwin (configure --no-cygwin --with-gcc, using gcc 2.95.3): When starting with "emacs -q" (no site-lisp anywhere), even before it pops up the first frame, it gives the error

  No fonts match `-*-Courier New-normal-r-*-*-17-102-120-120--c-*-iso8859-1'

and croaks. (Notice the "--c-" in the middle - that should be "-c-").

I'm sorry to say that after a couple of hours of debugging, I'm stumped. It's definitely coming from a block of code in lisp/term/w32-win.el, at around line 1238, but there seem to be absolutely no font patterns of this bogus form (something--c-something) anywhere in the lisp or C source:

(if (fboundp 'new-fontset)
      ;; Create the standard fontset.

      ;; [ STUFF ELIDED ]

      (let ((font (or (cdr (assq 'font initial-frame-alist))
                      (cdr (assq 'font default-frame-alist))
                      (x-get-resource "font" "Font")))
            xlfd-fields resolved-name)
        (if (and font
                 (not (query-fontset font))
====>>>          (setq resolved-name (x-resolve-font-name font))
                 (setq xlfd-fields (x-decompose-font-name font)))

       ;; [ MORE STUFF ELIDED ]

The "font" string passed in to x-resolve-font-name at that point is this bogus string. But I'm hanged if I can figure out where it got that value from. It's rather hard to debug lisp at that point, since the first frame hasn't even come up yet.

I managed to work around this by setting the Font in the registry. I had to do some handy hackery in the C source to even get the stack trace:

  signal(error ("No fonts match `-*-Courier New-normal-r-*-*-17-102-120-120--c-*
  error("No fonts match `%s'" "-*-Courier New-normal-r-*-*-17-102-120-120--c-*-i
