GNU emacs fonts again


My last cygwin upgrade changed the fonts used in GNU emacs.
This is:
xorg-server         1.6.3-1         OK
emacs                23.1-10        OK
cygwin               1.7.0-61       OK
font-alias            1.0.1-1        OK

Until now, I belive I was using:
font-bh-lucidatypewriter-dpi75 1.0.0-1        OK

I get now under emacs:

Fontset: -*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-default
Fontset: -*-fixed-medium-r-normal-*-16-*-*-*-*-*-fontset-standard
Fontset: -monotype-Courier

In fact, I might be happy with 'Courier New' (fixed fonts anyway!) if it
wasn't for one glitch:
the bold font is narrower than the normal one!?

In my emacs shell, the command is in bold once you have run it, but not
while you edit it.
It means that the command you edit doesn't align with the previous one which
and which you are just fixing.

Of the two widths, I prefer the narrower one (I find the width/height ratio
of the medium 
Courier New less readable).

So, may I align the widths?
