Font Problem with - wrong font used

I just noticed when I built a fresh CVS checkout today that some of my
fonts are not being displayed correctly.  My previous build was from
mid-February and they were correct then.  Namely, I'm trying to use
-misc-fixed-medium-r-normal--13-120-75-75-c-70-iso10646-1 and rather
than that font I'm seeing something very wide (looks like an English
text rendered in an Asian font to me).  However, if I do a M-x
customize-face default and then simply select "Set for current
session" then the font that I want suddenly appears!  So it seems
perhaps that the font as set from my .emacs file isn't used correctly.

My .emacs file looks like this:

(defvar taylor-misc-fixed-large 
  "Miscellaneous fixed Unicode font - larger version.")

(defvar taylor-use-x-font-p t
  "Use a regular X font (as opposed to Xft font) when true.")

(setq default-frame-alist `((width . 80) (height . 40)
                            (font-backend . "xft, x")
                            ,(if taylor-use-x-font-p
                                 `(font . ,taylor-x-font))))

(if (display-graphic-p)
      (if taylor-use-x-font-p
            (set-face-attribute 'default            nil :font taylor-x-font)
            (set-face-attribute 'tooltip            nil :font taylor-x-font)
            (set-face-attribute 'mode-line-inactive nil :font taylor-x-font))
      (set-fontset-font nil 'unicode "DejaVu Sans Mono")))

Attached are two screenshots, showing before and after I set the
default face attributes in customize.  Thanks for any information;
I've found that this bug dates back at least to the beginning of the
month but I didn't go any further to find out where it was introduced.
