gvim tiny font in 1.7.7

Hi again, all --
I didn't hear any reply to my last note (or even see it posted), but in
case that one made it out and this one can as well, ...
...and then David T-G said...
% ...and then Jon TURNEY said...
% % Does 'xrdb -query | grep dpi' output anything?
% Alas, no; in fact,
% xrdb -query
% doesn't return anything at all.
I haven't loaded any Cygwin updates. I haven't loaded any Windows
updates. I still get nothing from xrdb. I've rebooted more times
than I can remember. I'm using the same user account. As far as I
can tell, nothing has changed.
But suddenly it works! After this morning's reboot, I was restarting
everything (always a chore under Windows *sigh*) and on a lark tried
gvim again. I was floored to see it come up quite visibly, and even
with some font I didn't quite recognize. Typing
showed me that it was sans, which is interesting but probably came
from not being able to find Lucida Console on my machine. I changed
my guifont line in my .vimrc file to Courier Bold and it worked just
fine. I ripped it out entirely and I go tthe familiar gvim font. I
played with the size in my guifont line and gvim behaved. I selected
my font in gvim itself countless times and it behaved. WTF?!?
I hate these kinds of errors because it's so incredibly hard to get a
real resolution to the problem, but I'll not turn down having my gvim
work again :-)
Thanks to all for trying to help!
