I have

in my .Xdefaults and something similar in my default-frame-alist.

When I run

(set-frame-font "6x12")


(set-frame-font "6x12" t)

The only thing that happens is that the screen flashes.  Maybe its
relevant that I'm running the ratpoison window manager, which has
every window maximized?

Even if the window is maximized, it should change font, unless that window manager rellay forces every window to be constant size. What should happen for a maximized window is that if you specify a larger font, the window should grow, i.e. become larger than the screen. If this does not happen, I would say that the window manager is fundamentally broken. It is not worth the trouble to change Emacs for it. But please test this on another window manager. If it doesn't work there either, something else is broken.
