Uhm, I couldn't reproduce it today.  The menu is displayed properly
with text.  Now I'm in the office and use Emacs that I built Friday
on Cygwin under Windows XP.  I'll try it again on Fedora 14 in home
about 14 hours later.

It works.  But `emacs -Q', `emacs -q' and even `emacs' also work
today. :<

I don't know.  I have no personal X resource in both the platforms
because I want Emacs that is vanilla as much as possible when
testing.  Moreover some X resources conflict with XEmacs, IIRC.
So, all the fonts I use normally are set in the ~/.emacs file.
I seem to have no means to customize the menu font as for at least
Lucid Emacs, though (the font for the `menu' face doesn't seems to
be used for popup menus).

On Cygwin, I noticed the font used for the text varies by a way to
launch Emacs.  The font looking like `fixed' is used for the popup
menu if I start Emacs from the command line in xterm, but the one
looking like Helvetica is used if I start Emacs from Cygwin's root
menu.  On the analogy of this, I guess a font that doesn't provide
ASCII text is chosen for some reason when a popup menu is displayed
with no text.

Anyway the solution will probably be to have an X resource for
the default font.  Any other thought?
