After some private email exchange with the knowledgeable people
(designers of the system?), I got the following fix:

  (setq face-ignored-fonts '("-cronyx-.*-iso8859-5$"))

It is not documented, but this REx is matched against the name Emacs
uses for the query, and not the "actual" font name; moreover, this REx
is case-insensitive, and is not achored.

E.g., in my case Emacs was getting a Cronyx font via an -iso8859-5
alias; the actual encoding of the font (and the tail of the "actual"
name) was reported to be RAWIN-R.  But the REx should be designed to
exclude the alias name, not the actual name.

Hope this helps,
