It is not clear what "properly" means.

 (setq face-ignored-fonts '(".*RAWIN-R"))

does not fix the things;

  (setq face-ignored-fonts '(".*Cronyx.*"))

does fix the things...  The problematic font is

 cyrillic-iso8859-5     -*-*-*-iso8859-5

(as output by describe-fontset).

Hmm, is it possible to get the actual font name without getting the info?


P.S.  In my previous message Cronix was misspelled.  Sorry!
