Bug#3119: emacs font handling

Package: emacs
Version: 19.30-1

Font handling in this version of Emacs appears to be broken.

1. If I put

    Emacs.font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-*-*-*-c-60-iso8859-1

   in my .Xdefaults then Emacs reports

    Wrong type argument: internal-facep, []

despite having had no trouble with the previous version I used on this
machine (19.28).

2. If I start Emacs *without* that line and immediately switch to 6x13
   font using the menu, and then press C-H I to bring up *info* mode,
   I get an error message:

 Wrong type argument: internal-facep, [face info-xref 11 nil nil nil nil nil 0 0 0 0 0 0 8 -1 .....

   When I next raised the window to the top of the screen, Emacs
   dumped core.  I have the coredump (2Mb) if anyone wants it for
   debugging purposes.

   Other window operations (e.g. resizing to try to see more of the
   above message) sometimes make it coredump too.  It's very

However: it's fine in text mode (`emacs -nw'), and appears to be OK
with some other fonts, e.g. Courier works fine.  (Unfortunately
they're all too big or ugly for my taste - my eyes are used to 6x13.)
