This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.

[After a recent discussion on g.e.help, I submit this bug on the
suggestion of Stefan Monnier.]

When I "M-x customize-face default" the changes I make are applied to
all currently open frames, but not to any new frames I open. If I
restart Emacs, the customisation is applied to the first frame to be
opened. However, it's not then applied to any new frames I open with
C-x 5 2.

I have found that I need to customize an X resource (such as
emacs.font) to the same font as the face "default" in order to get the
expected behaviour.

I do not have this problem with any other faces.
