This is really valuable, Chuck!  I'd already independently settled on 
Deja Vu and Lucida Console already based on ad hoc testing, but these 
test results give me a objective foundation for that opinion.

(Why Lucida Console given its deficiencies compared to Deja Vu?  It's 
more vertically compact, allowing more lines in a window for a given 
point size, and I don't seem to have any programs here that need the 
missing glyphs.)

If random list members can nominate others for gold stars, I so do. :)

It might be good if this xgraphics file you have were distributed with 
mintty in the doc directory, so others can repeat the test on their 
system with other fonts.
