As I mentioned before, I'd seen references to those fonts but wasn't sure it

The delay dropped to only 2-3 seconds now though, so I guess that helps. Is
there a way to diagnose which fonts/charsets are still missing?


You could write a small test application which calls XCreateFontSet() with the base font of "*" and reports the list of missing charsets returned.

It also seems that twm reports these problems in a slightly more useful fashion than libXt (saying "font for charset <charset> is lacking"), so running that (against an X server not started in multiwindow mode) might serve just as well.

Hi Jon,

Fortunately (for me, not for the bug hunt) I picked up the newer version of xterm at some point, which set the menu locale to "C" and ended the problems.
