XLoadQueryFont() failure (e.g. |XLoadQueryFont()| returns NULL) causes glyphs to disappear even if another font has these glyphs. This seems to be a quite common problem on Mandrake and Debian Linux... ;-( Steps to reproduce: 1. Copy /usr/X11R6/lib/X11/fonts/TTF/ to /tmp/TTF/ 2. Edit fonts.dir and add a clone each line like this: -- snip -- a1 a2 b1 b2 ... -- snip -- 3. Rename [a-z]1 file entry to a non-existing file 4. Add /tmp/TTF at the front of the Xserver's font path 5. Run Mozilla Result: Many glyphs are missing since all the [a-z]1 XLFD entries causes |XLoadQueryFont()| to fail - and Mozilla does not seem to try further entries... ;-(( Expected results: Mozilla should try more entries until a font is found which can be instantiated (e.g. |XLoadQueryFont()| returns a valid font handle).
