Gnome-terminal, still the font selection

OK, I fiddled a bit with gnome-terminal, and found that:
1) some XLFD (X logical font descriptions) are limited in gnome-terminal
to 64 chars, where :
xlsfonts | cut -c1-64 | grep "lucida console" 
-b&h-lucida console-medium-r-semi condensed--0-0-0-0-m-0-dosenco
-b&h-lucida console-medium-r-semi condensed--0-0-0-0-m-0-dosenco
-b&h-lucida console-medium-r-semi condensed--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso1064
-b&h-lucida console-medium-r-semi condensed--0-0-0-0-m-0-iso8859

64 is obviously too short.

2) there are other problems. I can't find what they come from (they are
calls to Pango to find fonts, Pango returns a XLFD, libzvt asks directly
the font from X with this very same XLFD, and the font is not found, but
sometimes is).

However, libvte (alternate widget) works really fine for this. Should we
switch to libvte ?
