I don't know what else.
I assume you're using `emacs -q --no-site-file' right ?
I've seen you mention --no-init-file (aka `-q') but not --no-site-file.
Could there be some global config in site-start.el or default.el ?
Or does this Emacs come from some RPM or some other such package where
the packagers might have changed the default ?

As specified in the Xresources: looks sane.

This is odd.  Maybe the other poster (can't remember who it was)
was right: your Xserver has a weird font setup with an alias
from <godknowswhat>-iso8859-5
to -Cronyx-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--15-140-75-75-C-90-RAWIN-R.

Can you try to look for RAWIN in the output of something like

    xlsfonts -ll -fn '*-iso8859-5'
