emacs and .Xdefaults



I just made a new installation of bo, and emacs no longer seems to
read my ~/.Xdefaults file like it used to in rex.

  ~ $ cat ~/.Xdefaults
  emacs.font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-*-*-*-c-60-iso8859-1
  ~ $ cat ~/.Xdefaults-globe
  emacs.font: -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-*-*-*-c-60-iso8859-1
  ~ $ hostname
  globe
  ~ $ emacs
  ~ $ echo "That one came up with the big ugly default font."
  That one came up with the big ugly default font.
  ~ $ emacs -fn "-misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-*-*-*-c-60-iso8859-1"
  ~ $ echo "That one came up with the nice small font that I want."
  That one came up with the nice small font that I want.
  ~ $ 

How can I get this to work again?
