default-frame-alist apparently overriding font from minibuffer-frame-ali

> Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug and the precise symptoms of the bug:

Dear Emacs maintainers and/or Mr. Zenitani,

Here is the entire contents of my .emacs file:

(setq minibuffer-frame-alist
'((font . "-apple-arial-medium-r-normal--18-*-*-*-*-*-mac- roman"))
(setq default-frame-alist
;;; BUG: Carbon Emacs Package 20060617 following line
;;;      overrides value in minibuffer-frame-alist
        (font . "-apple-courier-medium-r-normal--13-*-*-*-*-*-mac-roman")

If I start up emacs reading this .emacs file, it creates a separate main frame and minibuffer frame, as expected, but the font in *both* windows is courier. I believe that is a bug, as the Emacs internal documentation on the variable "minibuffer-frame-alist" explicitly states that:

Parameters specified here supersede the values given in
`default-frame-alist', for a minibuffer frame.

Note that I need not take any action in the emacs after it starts up to observe the issue, as there is a remaining log message in the minibuffer, so the font it's using is directly observable.

If on the other hand, I comment out the line with containing "courier" in the .emacs file and restart emacs, the minibuffer comes up with the arial font, as expected, and the main frame comes up with some system default font. I can fix that first window with initial- frame-alist without disturbing the minibuffer, but then subsequent frames I create have the ugly system font.

I am using the latest test build of the Carbon Emacs package, based on Gnu Emacs 22.0.50 CVS dated 20060607, available on the web at http://homepage.mac.com/zenitani/emacs-e.html

I also observed the bug in exactly the same way on the version of Emacs available via the "Fink" system on Mac OS X as of a few weeks ago.

My apologies if this is a repeat posting of the bug, but I could not find any way to search open pretest bug reports.

        Sincerely yours,
             Glen Whitney
