Sorry, this is not really true.  `x-list-fonts' acts normally for at least
the default font for emacs -Q, which is
"-*-Courier New-normal-r-*-*-13-*-*-*-c-*-iso8859-1".

But it does not work for the font I use, for example, which is
"-*-Lucida Console-normal-r-*-*-14-112-96-96-c-*-iso8859-1".

I don't understand what the difference is.  The font works fine in Emacs
(20 included) in general. And it is an ordinary TTF font in C:/Windows/Fonts.

Any suggestion?  Is there something I can do, to make this font (and other
fonts installed, generally) work with `xs-list-fonts'?  What is it that
makes `xs-list-fonts' recognize the default font but not other fonts?
