XEmacs menu font changed

 
The Menu font in my XEmacs windows is much bigger than before.

I cannot pin down exactly when this happened, but nothing has changed on the Unix side.

Xmanager 1.3.9 was fine.
Xmanager 2.0 original (build 0010?) was fine.
Xmanager 2.0 build 0203 - it might have started here.
Xmanager 2.0 build 0301 - this is the version I am running now and the font is big.

I looked in the log and I notice the message:
Error: Can't open font '6x13i'
This is the first time I looked in the log so I don't know if this message was there in earlier versions.

In my .Xdefaults file on unix I have (since the beginning of time):
Emacs*menubar*font: -*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-*-100-*-*-*-*-*-*

I have attached a screen capture and circled the culprit font in red.

OK, so I changed the .Xdefaults to:
Emacs*menubar*font: -*-helvetica-medium-r-*-*-*-80-*-*-*-*-*-*

This looks correct via Xmanager, but when I open an XEmacs window on a unix (Solaris) machine the menu font is unreadably small.

Sorry for talking to myself so much.

I found the problem. I had moved the 100dpi font before the 75dpi font in Xmanager font settings. Changed it back and now everything is fine again.
