Please write in English if possible, because the Emacs maintainers
usually do not have translators to read other languages for them.

Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list.

Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:


The following 3 lines in function face-set-after-frame-default in faces.el
cause emacs to hang at startup (before the initial frame pops up).

          ;; X resouces for the default face are applied during
          ;; x-create-frame.
          (and (not (eq face 'default))
               (memq (window-system frame) '(x w32 mac))         
               (make-face-x-resource-internal face frame))


When I evaluate the function below in scratch buffer with
(face-set-after-frame-default-tst (selected-frame))
I get: Wrong type argument: font, unspecified


(defun face-set-after-frame-default-tst (frame &optional parameters)
  "Initialize the frame-local faces of FRAME.
Calculate the face definitions using the face specs, custom theme
settings, X resources, and `face-new-frame-defaults'.
Finally, apply any relevant face attributes found amongst the
frame parameters in PARAMETERS and `default-frame-alist'."
  (dolist (face (nreverse (face-list)))
    (condition-case ()
        (progn
          ;; Initialize faces from face spec and custom theme.
          (face-spec-recalc face frame)
          ;; X resouces for the default face are applied during
          ;; x-create-frame.
          (and (not (eq face 'default))
               (memq (window-system frame) '(x w32 mac))         
               (make-face-x-resource-internal face frame))
          ;; Apply attributes specified by face-new-frame-defaults
          (internal-merge-in-global-face face frame))
      ;; Don't let invalid specs prevent frame creation.
      (error nil))))


It's the face 'menu' that causes the error.

As a workaround I've now added a font spec for the menu face to my
Xresources file and the error is gone, e.g.
Emacs.menu.attributeFont: 
-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-17-*-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1

One nice thing about egotists: they don't talk about other people.

I don't understand it either.  Since no one else has been able to
reproduce this problem, I guess it's better to install the workaround.
