Posted the following on gnu.emacs.help and the kind people who replied
suspected that it may be a real bug.

> I installed Emacs 21.1 on a Mandrake Linux 8.0 system (i586). I get
> the "Variable binding depth exceeds max-specpdl-size" problem when I
> set the default font to "monotype.com" using the interactive Custom
> and evaluate the generated .emacs. The same of course happens at
> startup. I can increase max-specpdl-size to 2000, and this will get
> rid of the error in other lisp packages, such as vm, but the font
> setting fails with "Lisp nesting exceeds max-lisp-eval-depth". If I
> increase both max-specpdl-size and max-lisp-eval-depth to 9000, emacs
> crashes trying to evaluate the font setting expression.
> The lisp in .emacs written by Custom is as follows
> (custom-set-faces
> ;; custom-set-faces was added by Custom -- don't edit or cut/paste
> it!
> ;; Your init file should contain only one such instance.
> '(default ((t (:stipple nil :background "white" :foreground "black"
> :inverse-video nil :box nil :strike-through nil :overline nil
> :underline nil :slant normal :weight normal :height 90 :width normal
> :family "monotype.com")))))
> "monotype.com" is a TrueType font. It usually does get set as the
> default font despite the error.
> Is there an infinite loop somewhere in Custom or the font handling
> code?
