Turns out emacs was easy to fix.

I removed a line from my ancient (not really changed since 2004 (a
little bit changed in 2011 for an application I don't use anymore), and
with history going back to the late 80-ies, early 90-ies) .Xdefaults
file on the server side:
 Emacs*Font:                -misc-fixed-medium-r-semicondensed--13-120-75-75-c-60-iso8859-1

But eclipse will probably be a harder nut to crack.
