Thank you for finding out this problem.  I now can reproduce
the problem by delete the above font from my fontpath.  But,
your fix is just a workaround.  I think we should set the
ASCII font for the default font to what Fx_create_frame ()
found (I thought it was doing that but somehow I forgot to
implement it).  But, as I'm leaving for Beijing now, I'll
work on it next week.
