I was going to explain the change about this issue.

I had been trying to support such a case (i.e. the DPI
specified for the default font is different from the
preferred bold version) by loosing the rule in font listing
routine, but I realized that it's causes another weird
problem that is more difficult to workaround.  So, I changed
that rule more strict.  As the result:

> list: -misc-fixed-*-r-normal--*-100-100-c-70-iso8859-1

lists just these X fonts:

>   -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-*-100-100-c-70-iso8859-1
>   -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--14-*-100-100-c-70-iso8859-1

and, thus we get this result:

>   x:-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--14-*-100-100-c-70-iso8859-1

because the size is more important than weight (according to

Yes, that's the workaround I was going to suggest.  If you
want these fonts:

default: -misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--14-130-75-75-c-70-iso8859-1
   bold: -misc-fixed-bold-r-normal--14-130-75-75-c-70-iso8859-1

I think there's no problem in specifying Emacs.font as
above, and that is more reasonable.  Anyway...

thank you for keeping watch on this problem.
