I am doing the same, so, my apologies too.  :-)

Yes, we know.  (Thanks, BTW!)  As you may have read from other posts, from
Debian JP developers, the suggestion is to make "startx" uses "-deferglyphs
16" by default too, because the people running into problem with xfs-xtt &
xserver are the ones who run X manually with startx and didn't know they
needed to use "startx -- -deferglyphs 16".

The suggestion from SANO-san is to modify /usr/X11R6/bin/startx,
whereas the suggestion from ISHIKAWA-san is to 
in fonts.h.  Their messages were posted to debian-x@lists.debian.org,
so you've probably read them already.  Methinks both of these are excellent
ideas, so, take your pick, or heaven forbids, let's do both!  ;-)

Hey, that would be a nice idea!  :-)  Although the 16bit CJK PCF fonts aren't
anywhere as huge as the TrueType ones, it would definitely make loading
those PCF fonts faster.  :-)  Thanks!
