Ah, right, that explains it.  Hmm... I guess ideally, Emacs should
consider a height that's "too far" from the requested one as a failure
and then try again ignoring some of the specs.

The patch below expresses the first part, but it looks like the second
part doesn't exit: Emacs just doesn't find any font to use for the "thin
space" of C-x SPC and indicates it to me with one of those big squares
that say "0020", which is a lot more intrusive than the problem I'm
trying to fix.

And (setq scalable-fonts-allowed t) doesn't help either.

Maybe a solution/workaround for the specific problem of such "thin
lines" is to replace the (:height 0.2) face with another face that
specifies "any family".  If I use (:height 0.2 :family "Monospace"),
indeed, the problem disappears.  Is there a better "any family" than


PS: The patch below also happens to give me assertion failures
fontset.c:897: Emacs fatal error: assertion failed: fontset_id_valid_p 
I haven't investigated any further, tho (and the line number might be off
because of local changes anyway).
