ugly wide fonts started appearing

I rebuilt Emacs from CVS yesterday after a week or so of not
rebuilding it.  I had to do a 'make bootstrap' to get it to build.
Now today, when I started up half the faces are very big.

Running "emacs -Q" and then evaluating (set-default-font (format
"-xos4-terminus-medium-r-normal--%d-*-72-72-c-160-iso8859-1" 16))
makes it happen without any further customization.

http://dooglus.rincevent.net/random/superwidefont.png shows how M-x
list-faces-display RET displays today.

I'm using Ubuntu 7.10, and that font is from the 'xfonts-terminus' package.

It seems that any face with 'bold' set shows up with regular width,
and those without 'bold' set show up very wide.
