Bug#279245: different "Large" font sizes for utf-8 and not

Package: xterm
Version: 4.3.0.dfsg.1-8
Severity: normal

xterm's app-defaults make it use a 9x15 font for Large font in non-8tf-8
mode, but in utf-8 it uses a large (and IMHO uglier) 9x18 font.

I suspect that this is because
-misc-fixed-medium-*-*-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-* has no corresponding 
wide character font, so if it is used, display of CJK and etc characters
doesn't work. And probably the 9x15 is retained for non-utf because many
users would scream if it were changed.

But still this is a strange inconsistency between uxterm and xterm.

(Perhaps the best fix is getting a full version of the
-misc-fixed-medium-*-*-*-15-*-*-*-*-*-iso10646-* font. :-)
