Seems so.  Actually never qualified the CHARSET_REGISTRY part.  There
are various ways im using to set/change the default font:

1.  in my .emacs file:

     ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom.
     ;; If you edit it by hand, you could mess it up, so be careful.
     ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
     ;; If there is more than one, they won't work right.
    '(default ((t (:inherit nil :stipple nil :background "Black"
      :foreground "Gray90" :inverse-video nil :box nil :strike-through nil
      :overline nil :underline nil :slant normal :weight normal :height 140
      :width normal :foundry "xos4" :family "terminus"))))
    ; ...

2.  in some code I wrote for fast font switching which uses
    set-default-font and setting font in default-frame-alist

3.  in my (broken) test case: set-face-font for 'default

BUT in all cases I used "terminus 11", "terminus 12" and that like, no
further qualification of the charset...

So it seems that Emacs made different choices under certain conditions.

FWIW: for the first time in weeks I didn't experienced the bug today
(without changing any configuration!) -- maybe its shy and talking about
it makes it go away..?
