BTW: the above -*-helvetica-medium-r-*--*-120-*-*-*-* should have two more
"-*" to be complete.  Maybe that was the problem.

Have you had time to investigate to see what's the problem?
We've been creating fontsets (unless you compile --without-xim) for a long
time now without any problem, so it's hard to believe that the problem is in
the Xlib or Xt lib.

What about those that specify the font via the `menu' face?

and then try again

% emacs -xrm 'Emacs*fontSet: -*-helvetica-medium-r-*--*-120-*-*-*-*,*'

to see if the "-*-*" makes a difference.
