Hard to say. What happens for xfd -fn '-B&H-LucidaTypewriter-normal- normal-normal-Sans-10-*-*-*-m-60-iso10646-1' ?

xfd -fn '-B&H-LucidaTypewriter-normal-normal-normal-Sans-10-*-*-*- m-60-iso10646-1' Warning: Cannot convert string "-B&H-LucidaTypewriter-normal-normal- normal-Sans-10-*-*-*-m-60-iso10646-1" to type FontStruct
        xfd:  no font to display
        Exit 1

When I select the font manually in xfontsel it works as:

xfd -fn '-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-10-*-*-*-m-60- iso10646-1' &
        [2] 18394

% emacs -fn sans-10

give better results?

Partially! As long as GNU Emacs is loading the desktop and the session saved I can see clearly the text. When this has finished, the fonts become invisible. Invoking GNU Emacs with -q or -Q keeps the initial image and the correct size of "xft:-bitstream-Bitstream Vera Sans- normal-normal-normal-*-12-*-*-*-*-0-iso10646-1". So there can as well be something in my init file. When I invoke

emacs -q -fn '-b&h-lucidatypewriter-medium-r-normal-sans-10-*-*-*- m-60-iso10646-1' &

I never see that font normally, only the introductory page with the "GNU Emacs" logo and hyper-link to some documentation appears OK in Bitstream Vera Sans and Monospace.

It seems your X server or Emacs or a combination has problems with old style fonts.

I'd think it has to do with TT fonts (the Lucida Sans Typewriter is such one, from Java). Jeremy Huddleston mentions that he is using an elder version of FreeType because the recent one shows some bugs in Snow Leopard, Mac OS X 10.6. Maybe Mac OS X is buggy...

Later, after sleep, I can try to determine which statement in my init file is causing the "disappearance" of the sans font!
