Maybe that's a symptom of the bug here.  The only fonts I'm using are
AFAICT standard Windows TrueType fonts that come with the system.
The relevant section of my .emacs is:

  ; is it gnu emacs or xemacs
  (setq my-gnup (not (string-match "^\\(XEmacs\\).*" (emacs-version))))

  (setq my-windows
        (or (eq system-type 'windows-nt)
        (eq system-type 'cygwin32)
        (eq system-type 'cygwin)))

  (if my-gnup
      (condition-case nil
            (set-default-font "-*-Lucida 
            (set-face-font 'italic "-*-Lucida 
            (set-face-font 'bold-italic "-*-Lucida 
        (error nil)))

There is no other font selection going on anywhere, at least not
