10x20 font still not found

Today's GNU Emacs CVS snapshot, Fri, 2008 Feb  8  13:39 UTC
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.5)
built with

       (cd "/usr/local/src/emacs/")
        "time ./configure --with-x --with-type1 --with-x-toolkit=gtk \
         --prefix=/usr/local --with-sound=yes --enable-font-backend && \
         make clean && \
         time make bootstrap"))

and started with

     /usr/local/src/emacs/src/emacs -q

In the `Misc' sub menu,   mouse-set-font (<S-down-mouse-1>)
works for 9x15 and 11x18 but fails for 10x20

GNU Emacs reports

    mouse-set-font: Font not found

x-fixed-font-alist has

     ("9x15" "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--15-*-*-*-c-90-iso8859-1" "9x15")
     ("10x20" "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-c-100-iso8859-1" "10x20")
     ("11x18" "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--18-*-*-*-c-110-iso8859-1" "11x18")
although the -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--15-140-75-75-C-90-ISO8859-1
which I see on an instance of Emacs 23.0.50 from before the merge is
now -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--15-140-75-75-C-90-ISO10646-1 with
10646 rather than 8859.

Note that I can put
(a 10x20 font) in either my .emacs file or as a start up option;
but in that case, invoking

    ... emacs/src/emacs -q \
     -fn "-Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--20-200-75-75-C-100-ISO10646-1"

leads to a situation in which a non-selected mode-line (I erroneously
wrote `window' last week) has no text in it, only empty boxes.

The 9x15 font (i.e., -Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--15-140-75-75-C-90-ISO10646-1)
works fine.

My hunch is that the 10x20 font is little used except by people with a
monitor with a fair number of pixels per inch or millimeter.  That is
why both the keyboard-plus-mouse and the item in the menu `Options'
