45 is X_OpenFont.  The font the menu bar tries to open is

What happens if you do
% xterm -fn '-*-helvetica-medium-r-*--*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1'
% xfd -fn '-*-helvetica-medium-r-*--*-120-*-*-*-*-iso8859-1'

With these fonts, and also in iso10646-1 encoding (LANG and LC_CTYPE have UTF-8), it's all OK. But I found that the font from this X resource


makes problems. Xfd and xterm report (their windows don't appear on screen):

X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
          Major opcode of failed request:  45 (X_OpenFont)
          Value in failed request:  0x1400014
          Serial number of failed request:  37
          Current serial number in output stream:  38

When I select it in xfontsel manually, xfontsel disappears from screen with a similar report (major opcode is the same). Removing the resource lets all Xaw3d Emacsen launch again...



took precedence over

        Emacs.pane.menubar.faceName:    Libris ADF Std-9:style=Bold

after the X server upgrade or the X server cannot use


anymore, which were created from Apple's /Library/Fonts/Optima.dfont with fondu. FontForge has no problem with all five TT fonts and Apple's fonts package as well.

In fontconfig I have a configuration mistake because fc-list shows that family names come from the DFONT *and* the TTF files. Could this cause the failure, could GNU Emacs switch from X server as "fonts provider" to libfontconfig when the name is given as XLFD?

'-linotype-optima-black-*-*-*-10-*-*-*-*-*-*-*' once worked! Otherwise I would not have chosen it; I first try to see that the X resource setting actually works and does what I want to have as effect.

Jan, thank you for guiding me to this detection!
