Forwarded from:


When a true four-font (upright,italic,bold,bold-italic) monospace
typeface is chosen using the menus:

  Options--> Set Default Font--> "UbuntuBeta Mono, regular"

then graphical Emacs always chooses the bold-italic variant.
See screenshot at:


M-x describe-font shows:

  name (opened by): -unknown-UbuntuBeta 
       full name: UbuntuBeta 

although this shows 'normal' for both weight and slant; the
bold+italic form is being drawn.  Note that no synthesis is
occuring;  it is the genuine bold-italic that is being loaded.
