bug#484: Font bug in 22 (Carbon): default "Monaco" has wrong (frame-char

I think there's a font bug in Emacs 22 (CVS), Carbon.

To reproduce:

Start Emacs -Q
(frame-width)  (evaluates to 80)
(frame-char-width)  (evaluates to 7)
[select 14pt in the default Monaco font] (note that the frame does not resize in width)

(frame-width)  (evaluates to 80  - wrong!)
(frame-char-width)  (evaluates to 7 - wrong!)

When you select Monaco 18, the frame gets wider as intended (still a bad design choice), but (frame-width) is 81, which is too high. (/ (frame-pixel-width) (frame-char-width)) evaluates to 85. (frame- pixel-width) is correct, so I assume that (frame-char-width) is wrong.

Concrete use case:

Start Emacs -Q
(setq longlines-wrap-follows-window-size t)
[enter text with several words in a line that is longer than the window width, i.e. gets wrapped]
select 14 point (in the default "Monaco")

--> lines will be wrapped too late.

I don't notice such problems with other fonts.

The original bug report by address@hidden read:

Dear David,

There appears to be a bug in the latest Aquamacs version. If one tries to wrap the text (ALT+Q) with fontsize different from 12, one gets mostly garbage.
