I found that fix when researching the problem.  But I believe that it
doesn't really get to the root of the problem.  Specifically:

- The Tk documentation says you can still use X font specifications to
  specify fonts.

- However, when you do that with a semicondensed font (which is what "fixed"
  ends up resolving to) you get an entirely different font.  It doesn't matter
  if you used "fixed" or the full font name; doesn't work, you get something

That seems like a Tk bug to me.  Okay, exmh is still using the Old World
Order font stuff.  But that should still end up with the same fonts as
it did before.
