bug#42006: Installing font-dejavu breaks other fonts

Since my last full upgrade on June 9 2020, I found that if I have
font-dejavu installed in my profile, my terminal (rxvt-unicode) no
longer finds the font selected in my ~/.Xresources file.

I'm using Guix on Debian, and all the packages involved are installed by
Guix. They are rxvt-unicode, font-anonymous-pro, and font-dejavu.

I strace-d the terminal startup.

In the good case, it reads and loads a bunch font-related things before
it finally loads my specified font from its symlink in

In the bad case, this work is cut short before it loads the DejaVu font
directly from the store.

I've attached excerpts of these traces as 'good.log' and 'bad.log'.

Here is a manifest to test the effect:

   "font-dejavu" ; comment this package to toggle the bug on and off

And the ~/.Xresources file:

Urxvt*scrollBar: false
URxvt*font:     xft:Anonymous Pro:pixelsize=13:antialiasing=true \
Xft.hinting:    1
Xft.hintstyle:  hintfull
