Sounds similar to several other bug reports since the regression was
introduced in December. Most discussion is athttp://debbugs.gnu.org/cgi/bugreport.cgi?bug=16694

Don't make faces when loading Custom themes.
* custom.el (custom-theme-recalc-face): Do nothing if the face is
undefined. Thus, theme settings for undefined faces do not take
effect until the faces are defined with defface, the same as with
* faces.el (face-spec-set): Use face-spec-recalc in all cases.
(face-spec-reset-face): Don't assign extra properties in temacs.
(face-spec-recalc): Apply X resources too.
