Trying to debug a failure in font handling by the X server – XQuartz 2.5.1 (xorg-server – I removed some elements from Font Path. When I now open a menu either from menu-bar or by making it pop up, GNU Emacs reports:

Warning: Cannot convert string "-*-frutiger linotype-bold-r-normal- *-10-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-1" to type FontStruct

It comes from the X resource

Emacs*menu*font: -*-frutiger linotype-bold-r-normal-*-10-*-*-*-*-*- iso10646-1

When the menus just open no crash happens. It also does not happen when I select an item from a menu I open from the menu-bar, as in this case, when I invoked the function to report a bug from the Help menu. The crash happens when I select a menu entry from a pop-up menu or close the pop-up menu after I have entered the next menu level. So it works to change text font size, but buffer selection or selection of another font or fontset from the next menu level lead to the crash, and just closing that menu unused as well.

GNU Emacs 23.1.93 complains the same way about the font, but it never crashes.

BTW, the X resource setting does not seem to work well: some other font is used, one, which is *always* available. I also remember that some update (bzr pull -v) mentioned a message that due to some changes in text handling of Xaw based menus (to display UTF-8 encoded text correctly) some X resources were changed. Where are these names recorded or documented?

It isn't pollution that's harming the environment. It's the impurities in our air and water that are doing it.

I can't reproduce this. Does it work if you remove that X resource, or
if you put in a font that exists?

The resource is deleted (the font is available), only

Emacs.menu*borderColor: DeepSkyBlue
Emacs.menu*borderWidth: 3
Emacs.menu*shadowThickness: 3
Emacs.menu.attributeBackground: lavender
Emacs.menu.attributeForeground: DarkRed
Emacs.pane.menubar.margin: 2
Emacs.pane.menubar.shadowThickness: 3

exist. GNU Emacs crashes every time, independent of GCC version or X11
distribution or whether launched with -Q or not or as some other user.

I found a bug, please test it. FWIW, I only get it with your resources and with an optimized Emacs build, and even then it only happens very seldom. It is a race condition of sorts.
