[Evidently, I did not send this late yesterday; at least, it did not
appear on emacs-devel.  How do I determine whether I have sent a 
mail-mode buffer when I have also saved it as a file so it looks as if
it has already been sent?  

[This message also holds for a new GNU Emacs CVS, Sat, 2008 Jun 21 09:57 UTC
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.9)
Windowing system distributor `The X.Org Foundation', version 11.0.10400090
configured using `configure  '--with-x' '--with-type1' '--with-x-toolkit=gtk''
built with `make'.

[I see an -adobe-helvetica font when I start a new instance of Emacs as
  emacs -q -fn '-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-c-100-iso8859-1'
but (in the same instance) not after I load and evaluate a .emacs file
which sets initial-frame-alist and default-frame-alist!
Also, evaluating
    (set-frame-font "-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-c-100-iso8859-1")
converts the initial -adobe-helvetica font to -misc-fixed for the
frame when I start another instance with
  emacs -q -fn '-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-c-100-iso8859-1'

Success!  At least, partially ...

With a new GNU Emacs CVS, Fri, 2008 Jun 20 21:44 UTC 
GNU Emacs (i686-pc-linux-gnu, GTK+ Version 2.12.9)
built with `make',
I am able to start an instance of Emacs with:

    emacs -q -fn '-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-c-100-iso8859-1'

But interestingly, a second and third X frame, created with
`emacsclient -c' and with `make-frame-command' (C-x 5 2), has a
smaller font.  In both the new instances, `what-cursor-position' with
a prefix (C-u C-x =) reports

    -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--15-140-75-75-c-90-iso10646-1 (#x6F)

Oh, another problem.  I started yet another instance of Emacs with

    emacs -q -fn '-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-c-100-iso8859-1'

and `what-cursor-position' with a prefix (C-u C-x =) reports

    -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--20-140-100-100-p-100-iso8859-1 (#x73)

instead of the -misc-fixed.  Moreover, I am seeing empty boxes in the
splash buffer at the end of the line that says

    To quit a partially entered command, type 

However, when I copy that line to this instance, which is earlier and
actually has '-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--20-*-*-*-c-100-iso8859-1',
I see the word as `Control-g'.

In the new instance, the frame created by `make-frame-command' 
(C-x 5 2) has the same -adobe-helvetica font as the first frame, but
when I create a third frame with `emacsclient -c' (after evaluating
`(server-start)' in my `*scratch*' buffer) , the new frame has a
-misc-fixed font!
